WordCamp Torino: Decluttering WordPRess

As a developer working at a UX and WordPress agency, I’ve learnt a lot about common UI and UX mistakes. In this presentation I talked about how this knowledge helped eliminate common pain points in WordPress itself, from adding users to email notifications. It includes helpful advice for people who want to learn more about UX and perhaps even want to start contributing to WordPress core.
