Big WP London is a WordPress event for developers, publishers, product managers, and technical leads working on large scale high traffic websites. We welcome speakers from all over the world to share challenges and success stories on some of the most exciting and complex WordPress projects.
Join us for conversations on WordPress in Enterprise
This month, on 13th September, WordPress.com VIP and Human Made will host the first Big WP London in 2018, in the beautiful News UK offices. With speakers from renowned agencies including Ipsyde, 10up, and Big Bite Creative, as well as a guest speaker from News UK’s technology team.
Big WP London Schedule
The event will take place between 17:30 – 21:00 on Thursday, 13th September. Doors open at 17:30 to allow plenty of time to get through security and we encourage you to arrive early to ensure you don’t miss the start of the presentations.
Presentations typically last 20mins with an open Q&A at the end of every session.
|Giuseppe Mazzapica, Inpsyde
|WordPress Multisite for large and high traffic multilingual websites
|Starting from a comparative overview of the various approaches to multilingual WordPress websites, the presentation will focus on the usage of Multisite for the scope, documenting Inpsyde’s experience with the multilingual-via-multisite approach and the benefit it brings for large, high-traffic websites in terms of performance, flexibility and “vendor lock-in” avoidance.
|Gabe Karp, 10up
|Built in 1994, NobelPrize.org was one of the very first websites powered by a MySQL database. More than 20 years later, VIP agency partner 10up led a project to modernise the site, and bring a modern editorial workflow to the Nobel Digital team, whilst preserving the flexibility of that original build. 10up’s Gabe Karp will describe the creative and technical transformation behind the new site.
Joel Davis, News UK
|How we won the World Cup
|With the first major football tournament since we launched the Sun website on WordPress this was the ideal excuse to launch a new, innovative destination page. From the proof of concept to delivery in a few months.
|Jason Agnew, Big Bite Creative
|Using Gutenberg in Production
|Jason is going to discuss his recent experiences of using Gutenberg with two enterprise projects – one for the largest bank in Europe and the other for the world-impacting Amnesty International.
The Gutenberg journey hasn’t been without its issues, so Jason is going to explore the impact of the new editor, including how Big Bite are using Gutenberg, how the team tackled training, and how they price new projects which require blocks.
