Brad will be giving a talk titled Mieux filtrer vos listes avec Ajax.
What is your favorite improvement to WordPress this past year?
Better media management (photo galleries, etc) – WordPress 3.5 “Elvin”
Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Montreal?
Symetris loves WordPress, and open-source community development. We’re regulars at events like these where we can share knowledge with other WordPress fanatics.
What is your talk going to be about?
Better list filtering with AJAX. Websites have lots of information, and we usually reach a “list” page before selecting exactly which content page to read. Being able to filter and order that list effectively is really useful to help visitors find what they’re looking for.
What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?
Allowing users to manipulate/filter/order lists can really enhance their website experience. And WordPress has the tools to implement it.
Who in the WordPress community inspires you? Who do you follow?
What new feature would you like to see in the future?
Better multilingualism integration. More flexible content types. Easier management of user permissions.
