Dear WordPress Developers,

Please join us for this month's Advanced Developer Meetup on Thursday, July 23 from 7-9pm at the Skyhook offices. This meetup is held on the 4th Thursday of the month at the same location.

The vision for this meetup is to provide local WP developers with the education, support and networking opportunities we need to be successful in our careers. Each month we’ll bring in one or two really solid speakers to provide mind-blowing content, bookended with networking and sharing/hacking time. Oh, and we'll have sponsors to provide food & drinks as well.

This month’s lineup:

Site been exploited? I feel sorry for you son, I got 99 problems but a hacker ain't one - John Thomas (Ryno Strategic Solutions)
With the rise in popularity of WordPress, it has become one of the largest targets of hackers globally. Learn what kind of attacks are happening today, how to identify if you have been hacked and what to do about it. We will also talk about how to mount your best defense against the darker side of the internet.

We will cover:

  • dos/ddos
  • bandwidth hogs
  • malware
  • adware
  • redirects
  • finding rootkits

Most importantly we will discuss finding what is the vulnerability is and how to fix your site. We will discuss ways to protect your sites from attack, what plugins and settings help, how to monitor for attacks and third party services that can help.

John Thomas is the Chief Technology Officer at Ryno Strategic Solutions, LLC. He has been involved in IT/Web Development since 1996, and has done work for Apple, Hewlett Packard, AT&T and GoDaddy. His team manages over 300 WordPress client sites, and now uses WordPress exclusively. John is currently working towards the Certified Ethical Hacker certification.

Guided discussion
Following the presentation, we’ll brainstorm topics that are of interest to the meetup and explore further presentation & discussion. If a topic is particularly interesting, we’ll be looking for someone who can present on it in the following month.

Due to space constraints and a desire to keep the event intimate, registration has been limited to 40 attendees. Please register only if you are really coming so that we can keep seats open for others!

For those who can’t attend in-person, we’ll be livestreaming/recording the event through the Arizona WordPress Group website and YouTube.

Hope to see you there!

Dallin Harris
Assistant Organizer, Arizona WordPress Meetup Group
