VaultPress: A plugin for your backup needs

Your website is important to you. You spend a lot of time making it look how you want it to and keeping it up to date. 

But what happens if your site gets hacked? What happens if you make a change to your site that “breaks” something else on your site? How do you get back the time you put in? The solution: VaultPress

In this talk you you will learn about:
 * The company behind VaultPress: Automattic
 * What VaultPress can do for your site
 * The difference between the subscriptions offered and which is best for your needs
 * How VaultPress compares to other backup solutions on the market (e.g. BackupBuddy)

Speaker Background

Jacklyn Stachurski is a Happiness Engineer at Automattic currently working on the VaultPress team. She has experience with both and the self-hosted installation. 

Previous to being a Happiness Engineer, Jacklyn attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Studies. She also attended Specs Howard School of Media Arts for a year in their Digital Media Program.  

Besides building websites, Jacklyn also enjoys dabbling in graphic design and being a runner - look for her at the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon this October!

Venue and Parking

Grand Circus is located in the Broderick Tower, and you enter from the Woodward-facing doors. 

Once inside, go to the end of the hall, and take the elevator to the fourth floor. Turn left when you get off the elevator, then turn right and look for the signs directing you to the room. 

Parking is available at the Detroit Opera House parking garage, located on Broadway. Parking is $10 (unless there's a special event). There's also limited free street parking on the streets. 

The Detroit Opera House parking garage is a short walk up Broadway and around the corner from the Grand Circus space. Here's parking information from the Broderick Tower website (PDF)

Note: with the M-1 rail construction downtown, it will be challenging to maneuver downtown streets and find street parking. Stay current on the construction by visiting the M-1 construction page

    I'm planning to crash the party. Had trouble with PayPal from my phone, and it doesn't look like the Meetup app accepted my comment yesterday.

      Hey, Tim. I don't know if Xavier is attending, he hasn't registered. If you see him at Bamboo Detroit, ask if he's planning to register.

    Great to meet everyone yesterday. I'm still a novice trying to work my way through my first website with WordPress. Thanks for the opportunity to network, listen to others who have experience.
