California’s capital held its second annual WordCamp Sacramento this weekend at Sacramento State University’s Harper Alumni Center. #WCSAC spanned two days and offered two separate tracks, Calaveras and El Dorado, in the theme of the gold rush. Compared to last year when it was just getting its legs underneath it, WCSAC has really grown into a camp to be reckoned with.

Perhaps you’re just getting started developing WordPress websites for clients, or maybe you’ve been doing it for years. Either way, it’s likely that you’ve found yourself managing multiple WordPress installations.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the challenges of managing multiple websites and how to solve them by streamlining your workflow and task management.
In what became a very WordPress weekend, I attended WordCamp Cincinnati the day after attending WordCamp Rochester. Like Rochester, this too was Cincinnati’s inaugural camp. #WCCincy took place Saturday and Sunday in the modern concrete-metallic-designed Tangeman University Center at the University of Cincinnati.
I had the pleasure of traveling to my home state of Michigan this past weekend to attend, and speak at, WordCamp Ann Arbor.
#WCA2 was one of the most uniquely scheduled WordCamps I’ve been to this year. I wasn’t surprised because I’ve gotten to know Kyle Maurer, Lead Organizer, over the past six months and his passion for the community and doing things creatively is obvious.
One example of this was the music selection that played at the afterparty event. It was comprised of jazz music from all the artists that each version of WordPress was named after. This was just one of “the little things” that the title of this post refers to.
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have been the subject of many conversations for me lately. I think primarily because people are becoming more aware of just how significantly site speed can impact visitor turnover and SEO. With the ever-increasing complexity of interactive websites, server resources are being taxed more than ever; unfortunately, this is often at the cost of site speed. Generally, visitors have come to favor these more interactive features, increasing the demand for complex applications that require more resources. CDNs have become the favored choice to tip the scale of performance back in favor of speed.
It should come as no surprise that every day we’re immersed in the complexities of cyber security. It’s our business and also our passion. Since October is National Cyber Security Awareness month (NCSAM), we thought it would be fitting to write a bit about the overall subject of cyber security and how that applies to WordPress website owners.

After a yearlong hiatus, WordCamp Phoenix returned this past weekend with a vengeance. Over 400 attendees swarmed the Phoenix Convention Center to brush up on the latest WordPress news, learn new skills and network with fellow WordPressers.
#WCPHX was my third WordCamp and although I may be biased, it was my favorite yet! The event took place in the heart of downtown Phoenix and in true WordCamp form it felt like a home away from home. Our SiteLock team was proud to be a Master Builder sponsor and to take part in such an exciting event in our own backyard. We also debuted our very own SiteLock Wapuu, complete with sunglasses and a saguaro cactus.
