*** CHANGE OF PLANS: We're in the larger room this month ***

This month we've got Robert Li from WPEngine joining us with a preview of his upcoming WordCamp Sydney talk - Preparing for the Flood, a brief history into Load Testing and his learnt insights into how to properly load test a website so you don't have to deal with the all-dreaded "I just launched, and now my site is down!" moments.
