Victor will be giving a talk titled Steps to Securing WordPress.
What is your favorite improvement to WordPress this past year?
Ability to create simple media galleries.
Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Montreal?
I did it last year in Toronto and I was amazed by how much people appreciated the information. I thought I’d share that same info and what I’ve learned since. Of course there’s also the benefit of presenting myself as someone who is knowledgeable about WordPress which might help my business succeed.
What is your talk going to be about?
How to make and keep your WordPress secure.
What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?
Nothing is 100% secure. WordPress can be kept safe from untargeted mass hack attempts.
Who in the WordPress community inspires you? Who do you follow?
Cristian Burcă, Mark Jaiquith, Jane Wells, Siobhan McKeown, Otto, Nacin.
What new feature would you like to see in the future?
Better search, sort and filtering in the admin screens. Better documentation.
