WordCamps: What I’ve Learned So Far

Earlier this year I took on the role of Product Evangelist — WordPress for SiteLock and became an ambassador of sorts to the WordPress community. Being a product evangelist means taking on a wide scope of activities, most visibly attending and speaking at WordCamps. Prior to stepping into this role, I had attended other conferences, but mostly related specifically to the hosting and cyber security industries. Starting out with a bang, my first event was WordCamp Miami.

WordCamp NYC 2016 – The Empire State of WordPress

WordCamp New York City departed from the norm this year by hosting not at an academic facility, but at the prestigious United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan. Seated on the East River, the United Nations Headquarters boasted impressive art pieces and beefy airport-like security. WordCamp NYC took part in the UN’s Unite Open Source initiative which aims to “break down barriers to technology innovation through open source governance, communities and collaboration.” #WCNYC hosted their two tracks in two huge auditoriums, equipped with state-of-the-art audio/video equipment, including individual microphones for each seat.

Ask a Security Professional: Malware Analysis Series — Part Three: How is a Signature Born?

Security researchers at security firms like SiteLock® audit code that has been flagged as suspicious, either by individuals or by an automated system performing behavioral analysis (which we’ll talk more about in the next section), to determine whether or not the code is actually malicious. If a file or piece of code is deemed malicious by the security researcher, it enters the database, typically as either a file match signature, or a code snippet signature.

Starship WordCamp Orange County began its 48-hour voyage to boldly go where no WordCamp has gone before on July 9. The space-themed #WCOC was hosted in the Applied Innovation compound of the University of California’s Irvine campus. The event took place upstairs in an area called “The Cove,” which also contains what appeared to be various upstart companies’ offices as well as an impressive array of big-screen displays in most conference rooms. There were four tracks to host the talks, which were also themed in title, The Nebula, The Comet, The Dwarf Star and The Asteroid Field.
