Lightning talks: Daniel Koskinen, Jaakko Alajoki, Viljami Kuosmanen

Say hello to our second set of lightning talks at WordCamp Helsinki 2017!

Daniel Koskinen

Daniel started his own freelance business in 2008, building and maintaining mostly WordPress-based sites. Along with his colleagues from H1, Daniel joined Zeeland Family in 2016 where he’s now in charge of supporting an ever growing number of WordPress installs. Daniel’s lighting talk will be about the Customizer: how to create a better experience for your clients or users of your theme.

Jaakko Alajoki

Jaakko is working as the CTO at Evermade. He leads their dev team, provides technical consultation and gets his hands dirty with code every day. In the beginning Evermade did everything from photography to USB-drivers. In 2012 they agreed that WordPress is basically useless and decided to focus on ExpressionEngine. After a year – and some pain – they changed their minds and decided to focus on WordPress.

Viljami Kuosmanen

Viljami is a Forbes featured Hacker, Security Expert and a WordPress digitalist star celebrity (from Savo) with years of experience in the tech business as an entrepreneur, thought-leader and coder-consultant. Viljami will give real arguments against WordPress and talk about what it would take to consider switching to an alternative (dream) CMS.

Tickets are sold out, but small batch will maybe be available later! Subscribe to updates from the sidebar or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with more details about the event.

Speaker announcement: Joonas Jukkara

Joonas believes that the only way to be successful is to understand your customer, and the best way to understand your customer is to collect information on their actual behavior. Why are we still starting website projects asking how much does this cost, instead of how much value could I bring to the customer? Joonas will demonstrate how the decision you make while building your WordPress/WooCommerce site affect the way it can be marketed post-launch, people on your site can find what they are looking for and that you actually have a chance to get leads or sales from your site.

Regular tickets were sold out in two hours, but you can still buy a micro-sponsor ticket to get your place at the event! Subscribe to updates from the sidebar or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with more details about the event.

Edmund is passionate about front end coding, development workflow and scaling WordPress for enterprise.
