I Will Be at WordCamp Montreal 2013

WordCamp Montreal 2013

WordCamp Montréal 2013 is com­ing in late June and, as is becoming a tradition for me, I will be attend­ing this great event for the 4th time! It seems that the more experience I get with WordPress, the more I get out of WordCamp. There’s always an great roster of presenters every year and I always meet interesting people.

I was nowhere ready for it this year but I’m starting to think about presenting at WordCamp eventually. I’ve been working with WordPress almost exclusively for well over 3 years now and my experience with multisite used for multilingual sites could certainly help others. I know it’s a topic that will be touched upon this year but it’s a reality for almost every web site for me. We’ll see!

The talks schedule looks like the best I’ve seen so far this year so if you are near or in Montreal during the last weekend in June (29, 30), don’t miss it! As I’ve said before, the Montréal WordPress com­mu­nity is truly awesome!

See you there!

I Will be at WordCamp Montreal 2011

WordCamp Montreal 2011

WordCamp Montreal 2011 is coming in July and I will be attending this great event for the second time. When I was there last year, I was just starting to get serious about WordPress and had done a couple of test projects including Isabelle’s site and this one of course. Now I’ve been working with WordPress on pretty much all my client projects for the last 14 months and it has become the cornerstone of my process.

There are a lot of in-depth talks at WordCamp Montreal this year and it looks like I’ll probably be learning more than last time. If you are in the area during the weekend of July 9 and 10 and you are interested or already working with WordPress, you owe it to yourself to be there. The Montreal WordPress community is truly awesome!

See you there!

The Real Pixelyzed 3.0 is Live (and Back with Headway)

Sometime last week I finally finished the “real” pixelyzed 3.0 redesign and switched the theme of the site back to Headway. I’m very happy to be back to Headway and will talk about it more in future posts as I truly think it’s the best WordPress theme framework for professionals doing client sites on WordPress.

The 3.0 design will probably be tweaked and evolve with time but I do not consider it transitional as I’d done with all the versions between it and the original pixelyzed 1.0 design (the one with the “pixels” grid). It is purposefully simple and I will help me concentrate on creating content.Continue Reading

Coming Up On pixelyzed.com In 2011

To say that I have been busy in the latter half of 2010 would be an understatement… my lack of posting here or on my company blog is a testament to it. But I’ve been learning a lot and plan to share my best finds as usual. So, here are a few things that are coming up here soon…

New Design & New Headway Theme Framework

I finally took the time to put up a new design I can live with for this blog (for now… this is again temporary). I trashed the design with the gray header and took a new direction. This uses the same logo as v2 and integrates design elements from the original pixelyzed.com like the pixels/boxes but with a different treatment. I also tried to simplify as much as possible. I still have some typographic tweaking to do but at least I can live with what I have for now.  But in the background, I’m going back to the drawing board and starting from scratch.Continue Reading
