Thanks for the great interest on speaking at WordcampNZ. Check the speakers page for updates.
We have some interest in “User Experience re-write of the WordPress for iPhone app” which is being organised by some developers in Melbourne.
We also have some Community Building expertise from Miraz Jordan plus insights from her other projects.
Here are two other examples of two more topic ideas from content wiki page
Keep those ideas flowing thanks.
Title: Code without Coding
Name: Ryan Helyer
Many website owners find the coding side of web development to be too complex. They should be able to modify their own site designs easily, without ever having to type a single line of code. The intial automated coding systems produced by PixoPoint web development will be shown, including the development behind the PixoPoint menu plugins. The capabilities built into the current PixoPoint template generator and reasons for open-sourcing the latest developmental system will be outlined. The server-side CSS coding engine which is crucial for the development of these systems will be discussed.
Title: Blogging in Education & Gov
Name: Sarah Jones
Blogging and social media – as more personal and casual forms of communication – are changing the dynamics of the interface between civil servants and the public. The Public Service Code of Conduct states that civil servants must be fair, impartial, responsible and trustworthy. What civil servants say publicly is typically subjected to internal discussion and checked and verified before publication. Protocols specify who can and who can’t speak to the media. Social media presents new challenges to these processes. Lively and Lunchbox blogs, established by the presenter, will be used as examples of how blogging is changing the way government communicates with the public.
