Scaling, Servers, and Deploys — Oh My!

WordPress runs much more than just small personal sites. But a grown up, professional site needs grown up coding, deploy, and scaling strategies. As a freelance WordPress consultant, I’ve seen every manner of WordPress install; almost every one is Doing It Wrong™. On my Friday session, titled “Scaling, Servers, and Deploys — Oh My!” I will be sharing advice and best practices for developing, running, and scaling professional WordPress installations.

You’ll learn how to integrate WordPress into a version control system, how to do code deploys, how to scale up a single server, how to scale out to multiple servers, and how to maintain your servers. Anyone who develops or maintains professional WordPress sites will benefit from this talk. See you there!

Plugin Security Showdown

I will also be participating in a WordPress plugin security showdown on Saturday. Submit your plugin to be reviewed during the session. There will be prizes!

    The author of the theme I use, Don Campbell, and his main man, Thomas Hasch, will be attending. Can hardly wait for them to bring back all kinds of good information!

    Have a great time, Mark! 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to this one. I literally bought a live stream ticket so that I can screen capture this on my computer while I’m off enjoying my anniversary with my wife. 🙂
