This year’s #WCFAY was hosted at the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Enterprise Development on the University of Arkansas campus which provided three tracks, including one large auditorium.

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.

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.

WPCampus 2016 – A WordPress Event Focused on Higher Education

This past weekend SiteLock sponsored and attended a different kind of WordPress event. WPCampus was held at The University of South Florida Manatee-Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida. Not only was this location unique, but so was this conference.
