WP Security Lock is gearing up for WordCamp Austin!
Next Friday, April 25, marks the start of the 2014 WordCamp Austin and WP Security Lock will be there! WordCamp will be held this year at the Commons Learning Center, located at University of Texas’s J.J. Pickle Research Campus. Kickoff will be Friday with a Contributor's Day, which is a great way to give back to the WordPress Project. Followed by a Speaker and Sponsor dinner. Saturday and Sunday will be the breakout sessions and when a lot of the greatness happens. Saturday night will be the After-Party held at Pickle Commons.
Our newest team member, Michele Butcher will be there sharing all the awesomeness of that famous little plugin that is Jetpack. Her presentation will be an in-depth look into one of the most widely used plugins on the WordPress.org repository. From pictures to stats, and security to social media, Michele will cover it all. This will be her first WordCamp speaking experience so be sure to stop by and give her some love.
Later that day Chris Wiegman, lead developer for iThemes Security will be addressing securing your website the right way from the start. He will address the great ways to secure and the not so great. Even the myths of WordPress security. Chris always gives a great presentation, and this one will not be any different. Chris was on the WordPress Security Roundtable with WP Security Lock's founder and CEO Regina Smola just a few weeks ago. If you missed the Security Roundtable, click here.
For the younger WordPressers, WordCamp Austin is doing a YouthCamp for children between the ages of 13-18. They will be learning all about the greatness that is WordPress, along with building their very own website. This is a great idea for the next generation of Open Source users. Maybe we can even get a few interested in security.
Can I still go to WordCamp Austin?
Yes you can! Tickets can still be bought on the WordCamp Austin website. It is only $40 to attend and there are some Contributor's Day tickets still available. That is three days of WordPress awesomeness! Say hello to Michele while you are there! A little birdie also said that WordCamp Austin is still looking for volunteers. If you give them some of your time during the WordCamp you will score yourself a free ticket to all the festivities. To learn more or to sign up as a volunteer, click here.
