Our president Mr. Nakamura gave a speech on this topic.
He discussed the differences between the original and Japanese versions of WordPress and how to fix issues, how to set up your server to account for transmission speeds overseas, and the merits and demerits of removing translation or using caching to speed up your site, as well as other basics for performance tuning WordPress.
We had so many people attend this session that they almost all could not fit in the room.
Our designer Mr. Tohi gave a speech on this topic. He discussed how to use custom field templates, how to prevent the site layout from breaking, and the ways to make a site easier to update so that anyone could do it.
He was the head of the first lightning talk session, and while we had issues with Ustream, we had a successful turnout.
We have published a free paper for WordBeach and will be giving away vol.1 at Prime Strategy’s booth at WordCamp Kobe as well, so please pick up a copy.
Mr. Imura wrote a corner called “Let’s Make a WordPress Theme”.
