    Enjoyed this informative preso. It was deep enough to be substantive but not too techy as to get lost in the super coder weeds. Brad did a nice job of covering the various ways someone may try to hack your WP site and how to thwart attacks.

    Another outstanding presentation at Philly WordPress. Concise, informative and professional although this is to be expected considering Brad's impressive credentials to speak on the subject. Thanks Brad for sharing!

    Great meetup. As always Brad is dialed in and is willing to share his knowledge on WordPress and he also knows where all the most obscure meeting rooms are.

    Brad presented an assortment of tips to make WP websites more secure. Brad and Doug smoothly fielded Q & A on a variety of topics. Despite a mechanical issue with the projector, the presentation was smooth. Thanks for supplying the pizza and soda.

    Another powerful Philly WP Meetup. The speaker was a premier world authority on the subject and delivered the message with an entertaining, educational manner and an enlivened discussion. Complimenting the speaker was a technical wizard co-facilitator who could not be baffled by the extraordinarily deep questions of a charged group of enthusiasts. Another WOW night at Philly WP Meetup.
