Presenting: Domain Names & DNS

Everything…you didn’t know or potentially thought you knew,  but in fact you don’t really know and should.

Domain Names and the Domain Name System are some of the key building blocks that keep the internet running. Come and learn a little more about how it all works.

In this session you’ll learn about:

  • the industry that keeps your domains up and running
  • who regulates domain names, where to get help
  • new GTLD domains like .sydney and .shop
  • the basics of DNS
  • Understanding how DNS can help you make a website move much easier

Presenting: Extending WordPress and WooCommerce core

Join Michael as he shares his favourite practical WordPress and WooCommerce code snippets that can be applied to WordPress sites. Session content is aimed at WordPress site integrators and WooCommerce store owners but there’s content that new WooCommerce store owners may want to jot down for future reference. We will cover as much content as possible before switching to Q&A format.

Presenting: Product-Driven Websites: Achieving Results from Day One

How do you design and make decisions for the WordPress websites you build? As competition increases, the process through which websites are produced will become increasingly important. In his talk, Noel will tackle this challenge from a product-focused approach – to help you build more successful websites, quicker.
