WordCamp Toronto 2014 – Content Architecture
Posted by Shanta on November 16th, 2014
Thanks to WordCamp Toronto for having me back for a third year to talk about Content Architecture! I’m really excited to finish my WordCamp Tour 2014 in my home town. I’ll update the photos to reflect it soon, but rather than write it out, here are my photos from the journey!
I welcome the feedback and hope you will enjoy. I presented a similar version at WordCamp Buffalo (2013 and 2014) and again at WordCamp Milwaukee 2014 and got great feedback from that one.
Crowdsourcing My Next Business Card Picture
Posted by Shanta on October 1st, 2014
Last year, if you may recall, l posted about my business card experiment. Thanks to everyone who read the post, participated and listened to my story. Most successful experiments have a great story. I’ve determined which photo did the best (in terms of getting traffic to my website), which ones were taken most often and which one didn’t do so well. l will post separately on my findings, but I need to find a new photo! I’m going to remove this photo:
Keeping in mind that these are the three photos that I’m keeping:
Which of these would you use? I’m still working out some issues with photos uploading/displaying properly in WordPress over the last few versions, so I apologize if you can’t see them all that properly. Would welcome any comments as well!

Posted by Shanta on September 6th, 2014
Thanks to everyone who came to my presentation on WordPress for Non-Profits at WordCamp Los Angeles. I encourage everyone to put in some of their own cases and keep the conversation going. I know I didn’t cover everything, but that was partly the intent. Please let me know what I can do to improve this session and what else you would like me to talk about in future.

WordCamp NYC – WordPress 101 Talk
Posted by Shanta on August 2nd, 2014
Thanks to WordCamp NYC for letting me present WordPress 101 again. I love this topic and tag-teaming with Marc Benzakein presenting the WordPress Dashboard was even better. Here’s the slide deck from the presentation which has some more resources from when I presented it at WordCamp Chicago. If there are more questions, please ask!
Teaching Technology at DevTO – Slide Deck
Posted by Shanta on July 30th, 2014
A big thanks to DevTO and the amazing people at Shopify for hosting our talk on Teaching Technology with Marc Lijour of Cisco. Here are my presentation slides from the event, but as those who attended will know, the conversation was much more than just the slides! I still welcome feedback on this topic and want to make sure we’re going in the right direction. Amazing time was had by all, and great job by my students that actually attended!
