This week: Full Site Editing, WP vs Wix, the remote team management, headless and much more …
I’m Oana Filip, community builder, and storyteller at Pixelgrade. We’re a software company with ten years of experience in crafting digital products that support people who want to impact their communities.
Time has arrived! Community is not an abstract concept anymore. The times we live in sped up the interest in building tribes. Now, more than ever before, many companies want to be community-led, which says a lot about where we’re heading.
From the author of Get Together, an excellent interview about the power of communities, what we’re missing, and what the future brings us. While there’s still a lot unknown, we have plenty of practices that prove to obtain outstanding results.
From Pixelgrade about how the context shapes the outcome, and why we need to encourage more conversations and less comments within the WordPress ecosystem. In such a crowded space, we need, maybe more than ever, to relearn how to dialogue(listen to each other) instead of talking alone and pushing our points of view. Pixelgrade created a system that brings communication where it belongs.
From Christina Garnett about how you nurture a community of scale and why we have so much to learn from the football industry. The athletic world has many lessons to share when it comes to nurturing a tribe in a way that can scale and still remain authentic and relevant in the long haul.
From the guys at Uncommunity about the crossroad of community building and marketing and which does what. There’s a common ground between those two disciplines, but there is also a wide range of nuances that can make a difference. The goal is to bring complementary skills to the table and work together for the greater good.
WP Media, the company responsible for the WP Rocket plugin, was bought out by group.One. So far it seems that WP Media will remain independent and most of us won’t find this transaction unfavorable in any way.
