    * About the Talk:

    WordPress is known for pre-made themes that make it easy to get started. However, after a while you might wonder why certain design decisions have been made, how they affect your users, and what you can do to make the site better.

    This is where User Experience (UX) design techniques come in. UX is way of bringing together user needs and business goals through research, testing, and design.

    This talk will introduce the concept of UX and provide practical tips for improving your site.

  • Speaker: Graeme Lindsay
    Title: Lean meets Team

    Brief presentation synopsis:
    A story - told from the perspective of a team - as they take a journey of discovery. Refusing to be methodology zealots, they had to pick their own path and develop a set of practices that met their needs.

    Learning from their own experiences - their journey involved some accidents, some false paths and some good luck. In the end they borrowed from some Agile principles, copied from some Lean principles and made the rest up.

    The team are still on their journey, but the hope is that hearing this story will inspire thoughts and ideas for others who may be on a similar journey...

    When it comes to creating content, the hard part is 1) coming up with ideas, and 2) it's something that your audience is searching for and looking for on Google. And since the old boring cliché of "content is king" is always around us, it feels like you are under pressure to do your content justice by maintaining its high-quality and consistency.

    But rather than paying for expensive tools or outsourcing it, you can simply use just Google.

    Armed with some advanced search tricks and clever thought processes, not only will you have endless content ideas, but you will also become overwhelmed with content ideas that are suitable for your blog posts, YouTube videos, podcasts and beyond.

  • We’re delighted to confirm the date for the next Scotland VMUG and it’ll be in Glasgow on Thursday April 26th.

    Iain is always trying to convince me that Glasgow’s miles better, he’s obviously wrong. However on this occasion he has managed to find a fantastic venue for April. University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre; a venue that’s valid in both stature and purpose.

    The directions i’ve been given are; it’s a 3 minute walk from Queen Street station, assuming that’s based on Iain and James’ little legs so only 90 seconds or so for Sandy and I.
    More details on the venue are here; www.strath.ac.uk

    We’re working really hard to finalise speakers and sponsors, needless to say it’s going to be a cracking lineup and we’ll publish all details as soon as we can. As per always we’re looking for anyone community who’d like to participate in someway, please just contact one of the leaders and we can have a c...
