WordCamp Asheville 2016 – Discovery, Inside and Out

This past weekend I found myself at the third annual WordCamp Asheville held at the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNCA). Asheville is a truly unique place filled with beautiful nature, great food, and friendly people.

SiteLock was a sponsor and I volunteered at the PreCamp, a full day hands-on workshop for those brand new to WordPress.

Ask a Security Professional: Firewall Series – Part One: Network Firewalls

One question that SiteLock encounters quite often is “Why do I need a firewall when my host has one?” If you haven’t spent a good portion of your life researching firewalls, it’s easy to understand why you’d ask. Most website hosting companies utilize what is generally referred to as a Network Firewall, which is fundamentally different from, but equally as important as, a Web Application Firewall (WAF) like SiteLock® TrueShield. As a WordPress website owner, it is imperative to understand the roles that each plays in your website’s security.

In Part One below, we’re covering Network Firewalls.

Reaching New Levels at Prestige Conference 2016

Prestige Conference was held immediately following WordCamp Minneapolis, and just a few blocks away at the University of St. Thomas, allowing many WordPressers, such as myself, to pull a double feature in the friendly city of Minneapolis. If you’re not familiar with Prestige, it’s a premium business and career development conference. While not exclusively a WordPress event, the speakers and attendees were predominantly from the WordPress space, offering their familiar flavor of camaraderie and open-source collaboration.

WordCamp Minneapolis 2016 – Intention is Key

This past weekend I attended WordCamp Minneapolis at University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs in downtown Minneapolis. WCMPLS was one of the larger camps I’ve attended this year, and provided some of the best talks and landscape.

Foundation Friday

WCMPLS participated in the growing trend of hosting a Foundation Friday. “Unlike the normal conference tracks, these are full-day hands-on learning sessions. If you’re new to WordPress, you can get up to speed before WordCamp. If you’re a graphic designer or programmer who wants to work with WordPress, you can acquire a solid foundation to get started.”

Portland Maine 2016 – A Wicked Good WordCamp

We had the pleasure of attending WordCamp Maine this past weekend. It was held at the Maine College of Art; not only a beautiful venue, but one that inspired the same creativity and community that WordCamps are known for.

WordCamp San Diego 2016 – Round-Up

The first round of @WordCampSD tickets sold out within hours of being announced and stunned us all. The second and final round sold out March 1, a mere week after opening sales. Unfortunately, it was also twenty-four days before I officially stepped into my new role as Product Evangelist at SiteLock. It was looking like I missed the boat. In this case, the boat would, of course, be the USS Midway; the majestic World War II era aircraft carrier-turned-museum permanently moored across the San Diego Bay from San Diego International Airport … and WordCamp San Diego.
