Print Styles Talk from WordCamp Buffalo 2013

Back in October I had the pleasure of speaking at Buffalo’s second WordCamp. Unlike the talk I gave at least year’s event, I opted to go for something a bit more technical, something we build into every site we develop at Algonquin Studios and that I have been promoting for years now.

So I crafted a presentation on how to use print styles on a web site. At Algonquin Studios we support many platforms, including our own homegrown content management system (CMS), QuantumCMS. I have also learned that many WordPress developers also work on other platforms, so I opted to discuss print styles independent of the CMS used to power the site.

I focused on the background of print styles and related them to responsive design, I covered best practices and techniques, demonstrated how you can use Google Analytics to track what pages are printed from a site, and touched on the future of print styles.

All of my slides are here along with a video from my talk. Below the embedded content are links to other articles and posts I have written about print styles for those who want to get a deeper dive into some of the aspects.
