WordCamp Buffalo 2014 – Content Architecture
Posted by Shanta on September 13th, 2014
Thanks to WordCamp Buffalo for having me back for a second time to talk about Content Architecture! I was glad to be chosen last year too, but I’ve got the new and improved slides here. I welcome the feedback and hope you will enjoy. I presented a similar version at WordCamp Milwaukee 2014 and got great feedback from that one.

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!
WordCamp Milwaukee 2014 – Content Architecture
Posted by Shanta on July 26th, 2014
Thanks to everyone who came out to my talk yesterday at WordCamp Milwaukee. It was a small group but a well knit one. Apologies again for the technical difficulties, but here are the slides in all their glory! I would really love to hear some feedback on this, so please feel free to let me know how I can improve the talk.
Teaching Tech and Tech For Learning – A #DevTO Presentation
Posted by Shanta on July 11th, 2014
After attending almost every #DevTO event ever created, I’ve finally stepped up to the plate and decided to give my own DevTO Talk: Teaching Tech. I’ve teamed up with Marc Lijour of Cisco to present to you not only how Tech is delivered at Sheridan College (and many more places) but also how it is taught in the current system. We all know that none of this stuff is perfect, but my hope in delivering this talk is to start bridging the gaps. Are we as educators delivering the correct material to deliver to the working world the best we can? What are we missing? Are we on the right track? What are the biggest challenges?
Make sure you get on the list to attend, and I hope to see you there! I’m on record as being the first tech woman to attend, and that was only their second meetup, so I’m definitely a diehard! A quick note that many of my students are filling up the list pretty quick, so I suggest doing it now!
Still not convinced? Check out the link to the event on DevTO.ca and then register here:

Our friends over at WordCamp NYC (#WCNYC) have just posted the announcement for the beginner track being presented on Saturday, August 2. And guess who’s doing WordPress 101? This gal…again! Thanks to the gang at WordCamp Chicago (#WCChi) for letting me present this topic last month.
Looking forward to a new set of attendees and with it new questions. Anything you want me to cover? Would appreciate some feedback from the last one as well as input for the next one. Constant improvement is what it’s all about!
Here’s the announcement for the Beginner Workshops at WordCamp New York City.
