Hardening WordPress has very little to do with concrete or metallurgy and everything to do with making your site secure from hackers and spammers. We'll talk about some best practices and tools that will make your site more secure and give you a little more piece of mind. To get a head start, check out the Codex entry on Hardening WordPress (http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress).
Note 1: Gregory Ray has graciously volunteered to host the September Meetup. Thanks Gregory!
Note 2: We're starting a little later this month. Folks said rushing to the meetup after work was a bit of a pain. I hope this means more folks can make it out - like you!
Reminder: We're now meeting at Lab1500 (http://www.lab1500.com/), a brilliant co-working space located on Washington Ave.
Lab1500 is located at:
1500 Washington Ave., Suite 100
St. Louis, MO 63103
The entrance is on 15th Street and we'll be on the ground floor. Parking is on the street and the meters stop running at 7pm.
Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation.
6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.
7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.
7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.
