Museum Computer Network 2015: WordPress as Museum Web CMS

MCN logo

I’ll presenting a session at MCN2015 in Minneapolis this November, in collaboration with Sarah Wambold. Titled WordPress as Museum Web CMS: Development and Content Strategy, the core audience for this discussion will be web teams considering implementing a CMS (or switching from another), are evaluating WordPress and want to know what to expect. From the description:

A look at three Museums using WordPress as their primary web CMS. Glance under the hood at implementations for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, and the Clyfford Still Museum.

Panelists will discuss how the each institution’s needs are manifested in code. What’s the same and what’s different; what’s off-the-shelf, and what’s custom? We’ll also consider WordPress’ impact on content strategy. What workflows does it enable; and what approaches fit with different institutional structures?

MCN (Museum Computer Network) attracts hundreds of attendees from around the cultural heritage sector to explore the latest advances in museum technology.

We’ll be presenting on Friday, November 6. Hope to see you there!
