Speaker Spotlight: Sara Cannon

It’s the age old debate, does form or function rule? Do you find yourself firmly in one camp? (Yes, we went there!). Sara Cannon will explore the topic and how with WordPress, the possibility to have both has never been easier to achieve.

Whether you design or develop using WordPress, this session is a must! Sara is a WordPress core contributor working with the UI group and has great insights to share, read more about her and the topic below.

What will you be speaking about?

Designer vs. Developer – creators in WordPress

Who is your target audience?

Designers & Developers: creators

What do you hope attendees will get out of your session?

Some of us are designers, some of us are developers: We are all creators. The Venn diagram overlaps more than we think. Let’s explore these roles, WordPress, and how we can stretch ourselves to create amazing beautiful sites both in form and function.

Tell us about yourself and how you use WordPress.

I have a passion for art, design, and typography which I utilize as a Partner and Creative Director for Range – A design and development shop specializing in WordPress. I’m based out of Birmingham, AL, and I am a WordPress core contributor working with the UI group, organizer of WordCamp Birmingham, a lover of open source, my dogs, and a good beer. You can find me tee-heeing on twitter @saracannon or writing on my blog sara-cannon.com.

“Life is short, art is long, typography is everything, code is poetry.”

What is your favorite WordPress plugin and why?

Menu Humility By Mark Jaquith: Prevents plugins from injecting themselves as top level menus before your content menus. It shoves them to the end which is good for ux.
