An Introduction to Character Encoding - WCNO - WCNL

An Introduction to Character Encoding - WCNO - WCNL

My talk from WordCamp Norway 2016 and WordCamp Nederlands 2016

If you’ve ever migrated a database from one site to another and ended up with jumbled characters in your content, this talk is for you. I’ll also explain why emoji in WordPress is the PR face of something much deeper and more important.
