Relying on students to run your WordPress multisite sounds scary, but it doesn’t have to be. NYU Web Publishing is a tool and a service which empowers faculty, students and staff to create their own websites, and student workers have helped us scale to more than 10,000 user created sites. Learn how NYU created an environment for graduate and undergraduate students to make meaningful contributions to the product while building marketable skills in product management and information technology.
We’ll discuss our students and their work, our challenges, and how we all stay organized and moving in the right direction with an agile process.
