2014 Plugin Roundup - Which plugins are a must have for your site?

Matthew Blackford will host the first meetup of 2014 with a plugin roundup. WordPress plugins are readily available and are a great way to extend your website. There are many free and premium plugins, but it can sometimes be difficult to pick the good from the bad. The worst plugins will slow down your site or make it vulnerable to attacks, so it's important to know what you're installing.

In this talk, we will discuss the top "must have" plugins for your site. These will cover plugins for bloggers, business owners, and developers, and designers. What's the best plugin for SEO? Which backup plugin can you rely on? Should you be using a security plugin?

What plugins do you think should make the list? Leave your suggestions in the comments section.
