Well, this week what’s really struck me is diversity.
Not physically, I mean.
But with our experiences at WordCamp Whitley Bay – an event we also had the pleasure of sponsoring.
It was clear that diversity within the world of WordPress is something to be hugely proud of, and something to be celebrated.
To me, ‘diversity’ means ‘many things’.
But the word ‘diversity’ comes from the Latin ‘diversus’, which implies difference, and separateness. And yet what’s very clear at any WordCamp or other WordPress-related events (such as Atarim’s summits) is that for all our variety as individuals, we all have one thing in common – that goal to learn, embrace, enjoy, and push forward our understanding and ability to create new content, in better ways, for an awesome user experience to delight clients.
Kirsty Burgoine’s presentation on “Over the Rainbow – Talking about inclusivity for the LGBTQIA+ community in WordPress” was fascinating, and we also had a chance to meet with Siobhan McKeown (COO of Human Made) as well as Andrea Howey (UpdraftPlus).
If you missed WordCamp Whitley Bay, and you’re wondering about attending a future event, you might enjoy reading our article: What Is A WordCamp & Why You Should Attend Them.
But when it comes to inclusivity, it’s essential to remember that this means many things, and when designing a website it’s vital we make it as inclusive as possible. For practical advice on this, take a look at our post, How to Improve Website Accessibility.
And finally, remember that diversity isn’t an underwater town made up of multi-ethnic scuba instructors…
We love hearing from you and are truly grateful for all of the reviews posted online. If you haven’t already, please consider taking a couple of moments to share your experience of how Atarim has helped you.
In an effort to speed up things even more, we’ve done a bunch of changes to the way you activate the WordPress plugin to make it as fast as possible, so you don’t have to wait around when getting your projects added to the Atarim Dashboard.
A Women in WordPress Mentorship Scheme: With diversity and inclusivity both key focuses within the world of WordPress right now, this is an exciting platform for helping provide mentorships to women who want to help address the underrepresentation of women within the WordPress ecosystem. Founded by Siobhan McKeown and Francesca Marano, this scheme provides opportunities for both mentees and mentors, so I fully encourage you to read a little about what they’re doing, and how you might be able to either lend a hand – or benefit.
Developers Raise Concerns About WordPress.com Plugin Listings Outranking WordPress.org on Google Search: John Blackbourn’s revelation this week that his WordPrеss plugin rankеd highеr on WordPrеss. com than on WordPrеss. org has sparkеd much controvеrsy. Thе corе of the debate liеs in thе brand confusion bеtwееn thе commеrcial . com and opеn-sourcе . org domains. Whilе somе arguе this hindеrs thе opеn-sourcе initiativе, WordPrеss co-foundеr Matt Mullеnwеg believes it bеnеfits plugin distribution. The issue underscores thе tеnsion bеtwееn commercial goals and opеn-sourcе principlеs.
