Weekly Update

Hi everyone !

It’s been 2 or 3 weeks that I have not done weekly update. Why ? Classes resumed and I was a lot busier than expected! Last week I organized with my student club Les Ingénieuses our first “5 à 7”. It took a lot of time. Fortunately, the event was a success at my college!

 

I also published an article on how to install Mailchimp for free and without a plugin on a multilingual WordPress (or not) !

That’s it for this week ! See you next week !

Mailchimp Multilingual WordPress

MailChimp is a tool that is used to send newsletters to its subscribers. It allows you to collect emails from readers in order to build a network. Today, it is an indispensable marketing tool on the web and one of the most used. It is free for up to 2,000 subscribers or 12,000 emails per month.

My blog GirlKnowsTech is available in French and English. So I naturally decided to set up a newsletter in French and another in English. I use qTranslateX as plugin to write my blog in both languages. This tutorial is going to use this plugin. But I think you can pretty much do the equivalent with other plugins like WPML.

Tech Women Youtube

 

One day, I was searching for tech women on YouTube and I had some trouble in finding any. I thought that was very sad and I needed to do something!

Therefore, I asked my followers on Instagram if they knew any channels and I found some of them by myself with a couple more in depth research. There are not many, so we need to promote them! If you know of other women who create videos on YouTube, do not hesitate to share the channel in the comments of this article. I will be happy to add it to this list!

In addition, if you have an OVH server, I already have an article where I guide you step-by-step on how to install WordPress.

Logo WordCamp Montréal 2016

WordCamp Montreal is an event that I really wanted to attend since last year. Finally, I has the the opportunity to participate on 23 and 24 July. It was my first WordCamp!

Therefore, I had great difficulty choosing what to attend presentations. At least, all presentations are filmed and will be available in a few weeks / months on WordPress.tv. Each presentation lasted about 45 minutes for questions.
