Lessons learned publishing a digital WordPress magazine

Published on

At WordCamp Switzerland 2014 I talked about my experiences running a digital WordPress magazine. The Swiss WordPress Magazine started as a website and in the end became an iOS & web app with high-quality articles.

I also gave a short prospect about what's coming in the future.

Ps. The video on slide 23 is available here: https://vimeo.com/90740753
