Pursuing Perfection in an Evolving WordPress Ecosystem By Devin Walker


About Session

Every pixel matters. Every word counts. Each function is efficient. Paying attention to detail makes for a better experience in all aspects of WordPress. From design and development, to content writing and marketing, the more attention you pay to the details of a project, the more professional the end result will become.

WordPress gives its users the power to create almost any website with limited knowledge and the click of a mouse. All too often, brands are created with little thought and products are rushed through to production with a lackluster result. With the proliferation of page builders, 40,000+ plugins, and an unending supply of themes, it’s easy to fall into this trap.

In this session, you will learn why it’s better to move slower and focus on the details by working smarter from the beginning. One typo, one broken image, and one 404 error can ruin an entire web experience. Learn the tactics professionals employ to create truly impactful experiences that directly impact how your users view your brand and ultimately, add to your bottomline.
