WordPress Meetup Tokyo #23 - May 2015: WP security measures you can do today!


Hello WordPress developers & users in Tokyo!

Next WordPress Meetup Tokyo event for English-speakers will be on Saturday, May 23rd at coworking space "Co-Edo (https://www.facebook.com/CoWorkingSpaceKayabacho)" in Kayaba-cho.


WordPress security measures you can do today!

Since WordPress 4.2 was released just about 4 weeks a go, there are already two security updates --4.2.1 and 4.2.2-- released. Let's recap and apply good security measures you should be taking for you WordPress.org sites.

This will be a half(-ish) presentation, and rest will be a hands-on. So I strongly recommend you to bring your laptop with an environment to work on your site (locally or remote server).

1st part: a presentation on "WordPress security measure you can do today!" by Toru Miki. Will recap 10 or so measures you should be taking, while developing and running a site using WordPress*

2nd part: hands-on. Check your site's security status, apply some security measure, etc.

*WordPress.org powered sites.

Charge: ¥1,000/per person

As usual, this includes the standard usage fee of the coworking space. If you wish, you can use the space before and after the meetup with no additional charge (Co-Edo is open between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends).

All presentations and discussions will be in English.
