Speaker Spotlight: Clarissa Peterson

After spending more than a decade in Washington, D.C., managing websites for nonprofit organizations, Clarissa Peterson set off last fall on an international road trip that took her through nearly twenty states and provinces. While traveling, she works from the road as an independent UX designer, web developer, and consultant, and she frequently speaks on responsive design and mobile strategy. Clarissa is the author of Learning Responsive Web Design, to be published later this year by O’Reilly Media. You can find her on Twitter: @clarissa

Clarissa is presenting: Using Responsive WordPress Themes

Why WordPress? Why do you like using WordPress? For anyone who does client work, WordPress has a great deal of versatility, which means that you can use it for almost any type of website or project. Otherwise you’d have to learn multiple CMSs in order to be able to offer clients the same variety of functionality.
Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Ottawa? I have been to a few WordCamps in different cities, but this is my first time speaking at one. I’m excited to be able to give back to the community by sharing knowledge.
What is your talk going to be about? It will go beyond the basics of responsive design and help you understand the best ways to implement responsive design on your WordPress site, along with what else you need to do to make sure your site works well on all devices.
