WordPress 3.6 Highlights and Security Tips

For the April Meetup I'm going to give an introduction to WordPress 3.6, slated to be released 4/29, and the new default theme that will be coming with it, Twenty Thirteen, which is taking a departure from the previous plain default themes by being bold and colorful. You can view the demo here:

I will then talk about WordPress security in light of a couple of recent incidents, particularly the brute force attack that started a couple of weeks ago.

I will be bringing bottled water and some snacks; bring your laptops or tablets and come prepared to learn and share! Cost is $5 collected on-site to help defray room and food costs. Look forward to seeing you there!

    Hi there! I am new to the group and have a couple of questions before deciding whether or not to go to tomorrow night's meeting. My small handyman service already has a wordpress website, relatively new, "Contractor" theme, so I'm not sure that I need to learn about the 3.6 version? Also, I know nothing about security or any recent incidents. Would I benefit from coming to this month's meeting?
    Thanks a bunch!

      Yes, knowing about 3.6 is good because you will have to upgrade your version of WordPress, and everyone needs to learn what they can about website security. I will be presenting things that everyone should be doing to keep their sites more secure against attacks, and how to recover in case your site gets hacked.
