This weekend I had the honor of returning to near where I started my WordPress career by giving the opening keynote presentation at WordCamp St. Louis on Building with Community. The talk was an overview of building Better WP Security and other projects and how the WordPress communities helped me along the journey and, eventually, how I managed to build a successful community around the plugin. Below are my slides from the talk.
Chris is a developer for UF Health at the University of Florida who has been working on WordPress since 2008. Over the years he built one of the largest security plugins on WordPress.org as well as numerous other plugins, themes and other solutions. When not coding Chris loves to teach and has presented at numerous WordCamps and other conferences as well as taught computer security for St. Edward’s University and other University courses ranging from computers to aviation.
