This was my first WordPress London having missed the first instalment in 2013. Expectations were high, as with everything that happens in London and #wpldn certainly delivered.
I usually put my highlights in to a blog post but I’m writing this almost a month after and therefore have forgotten the specifics of the talks. All, except for Bruce Lawson‘s talk.
There were three things that stood out about his talk:
- He wasn’t the usual WordPress speaker, he was from outside of the WordPress community
- He is (at least) a part time speaker so his ‘act’ was very polished.
- He was talking about images – my favourite subject.
Bruce’s talk was about responsive images and the new standards available to web developers. It reminded me how out of date my talk on optimising images for WordPress is from 2 years ago and the pace that the web development moves at.
So Bruce has given my inspiration to update my talk and present it at a WordPress meetup in the future. I’d love for my talk to be half as polished as Bruce’s.
