The Impact of the Customizer at WCPDX

Authored by

A couple months ago at WordCamp Portland, I gave a talk on “The Impact of the Customizer”:

The Customizer is WordPress’s framework for live previewing changes to a site. Live preview gives confidence to those who would otherwise lack it when making a change: it gives freedom to experiment and explore, without a negative “save and surprise” experience which discourages users from trying to make future changes. This talk will explore how the Customizer can improve the site management experience for users by looking at unique applications of the Customizer that are currently possible and also by looking at what is planned for the Customizer in the future of WordPress core.

Here’s the video:
