My presentation titled “Writing (more) Secure Plugins” was accepted into developer’s track for WordCamp Minneapolis 2015. This presentation aims to enlighten WordPress plugin developers of common attacks and preventative measures that should be taken within any WordPress plugin.
Topics covered include: Plugin security best practices, data sanitization (and validation), action authorization, and permissions. As always, this is a non-exhaustive list of the topics I’ll cover but it should give a feel for what I’ll be talking about.
My presentation titled “1 Million Downloads – Lessons Learned Growing a Plugin” was accepted as a lightning talk for WordCamp Chicago 2014. This presentation was inspired by a presentation I attended at WordCamp Chicago 2013. It is an abridged version of the talk I will be giving at WordCamp Minneapolis 2014, which is just a week an a few days away.
My presentation titled “1 Million Downloads – Lessons Learned Growing a Plugin” was accepted into the second developer’s track for WordCamp Minneapolis 2014. This presentation was inspired by a presentation I attended at WordCamp Chicago 2013. It will cover my experiences (mistakes, triumphs, etc.) as I have grown Breadcrumb NavXT over the past 7 years.
This session will cover what I have found that works, and the mistakes I made as I’ve grown Breadcrumb NavXT into a plugin that has been downloaded over 1 million times. Topics covered include: support and release strategies, workflow and tools, and WordPress plugin coding tips. Naturally, this is a non-exhaustive list of the topics I’ll cover but it should give a feel for what I’ll be talking about.
Psst. If you haven’t registered yet, register for WordCamp Minneapolis while you still can. Last year we sold out of two day passes and Saturday only passes. Also, it is definitely worth participating in both Saturday and Sunday activities, Kiko and crew did an excellent job organizing last year and this year is looking to be even better.
This past weekend we held the first WordCamp in the Twin Cities area in almost three years. To top it off, we held a BuddyCamp as well. A giant thanks to Kiko Doran, Justin Foell, Toby Cryns, the sponsors, and the rest of the volunteers that made WordCamp Minneapolis 2013 happen. These guys and gals put on a great event, as everything went very smoothly the planning and effort they put into it really showed. These are my pictures from the event. Continue reading
This weekend, I presented The Power of Custom Types a reworked version of a talk with a similar name that I gave at WordCamp NYC 2012. Similar to the situation at WordCamp NYC 2012, I gave a encore presentation later in the day for those who missed it due to interest in other sessions in the same time slot. Those looking for the slides have two options, either a PDF export of the slides or the original PPT (ends up being more portable than other formats).
