Cal Evans – Personal branding, developer advocacy & community
Feb 15, 2016 @ 12:19:18

Thjis Feryn has posted another in his series of video interviews with a member of the PHP community. In this latest episode Thijs caught up with Cal Evans at this year's PHPBenelux conference.

The interview was recorded at PHPBenelux Conference 2016. Cal Evans was invited as the keynote speaker which he was very excited about. He had keynoted our very first edition back in 2010 and now he was back. Over the years there was quite some talk about inviting him back, but up until recently it never really worked out.

He obviously did a really good job.

They talk some about branding, being a "developer advocate" and being a member of the global PHP community (or just your local one). You can watch the video of the episode either in the in-page video player or directly on YouTube. If you're more audio-inclined you can also listen over on SoundCloud. If you'd like the show, you can check out other interviews on his site through the "interview" tag on his site.

How to Make WordPress Easier for Clients, Part 1: Custom Branding
Apr 15, 2010 @ 11:10:22

SitePoint.com has started a new series of posts today looking at how to make WordPress easier for clients to use and be happier with overall. Craig Buckler looks at things that can help your clients think simpler and easier.

In this series of articles we'll implement several options to make WordPress easier for your clients. You can probably find plugins to achieve the same thing, but this code is easy, flexible, and won't need to be updated (unless you want to make updates yourself).

He talks about how to manually do two things to make the clients' lives simpler - change the logo to something more company-related and remove the update notification from the admin panel so they don't get confused as to what the update means.
