WordSesh EMEA’s schedule features a healthy mix of topics, including multiple sessions on using Gatsby with WordPress, image optimization, webops, managing a business with mental illness, building SaaS apps with WordPress and Laravel, and Jetpack.

Muhammad Muhsin, a Sri Lanka-based React developer at rtCamp, will be presenting a session on using WordPress as a headless CMS with Gatsby. After Gatsby introduced themes, he started converting WordPress themes to Gatsby and experimenting with using WPGraphQL to get the content. He is also the lead developer for the GatsbyWPThemes.com project.

If you have ever heard the marketing term “digital experience platform” (DXP) and wondered what all the buzz is about, Karim Marucchi, CEO of Crowd Favorite, has a session titled “What’s All The Fuss About DXPs, and Why Should I Care?” He will explore a recent trend where enterprise clients are moving away from content management towards DXP’s that integrate online marketing tools.

Ahmad Bilal, a developer based in Pakistan and 2019 Google Summer of Code student, will be presenting a session on GitHub Actions and how to automatically deploy a plugin to WordPress.org when tagging a new version on GitHub.

WordSesh EMEA provides an opportunity for viewers in the Middle East, Europe, and Africa to see virtual conference sessions during regular daytime hours, but it also gives viewers in the Western hemisphere a chance to hear speakers who they may never meet at a local WordCamp. It is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, 2019, from 7:00-19:00 UTC. A handy dropdown on the schedule allows viewers to select their own timezone for the schedule display. Sessions will be conducted in English for this first EMEA event and will also be live captioned.

WordSesh EMEA is free for all to attend online and registration for tickets will be open Monday, September 9.
