WordCamp Europe Is Next Week!

Next week I will be attending and speaking at the first ever WordCamp Europe! The event takes place October 5th-7th in Leiden, Netherlands. WordCamp Europe is going to be an amazing event with a insane amount of awesome presentations.

WordCamp Europe 2013 SpeakerI will be presenting on Writing Secure WordPress Code. I’m scheduled to be the last presentation on Saturday at 17:15. I’ll be covering tips and functions available in WordPress that can help you keep your code as secure as possible. Whether you’re a plugin developer or build themes, it’s extremely important to understand how to secure your code from hacks and exploits.

As awesome as this event is going to be, I’m just as excited to see many of my friends at the event. The Attendees list is a who’s who of WordPress awesomeness. I have so many European friends in the WordPress community that will be in attendance so I can’t wait to hang out!

If you’re attending WordCamp Europe make sure you track me down and say hi!

  1. Hi Brad, very much enjoyed your talk at #wceu!
    Although I realise that you gave a very simple example of cross-site scripting during your presentation, my question is how – or perhaps more important when – would someone be able to add something like a script in the first place? What I mean to say is that if someone already has gained access to the site, then why would he/she do something like that instead of taking the entire site offline or deleting the whole lot?
    Hopefully you can enlighten me :)
    Thanks,
    Piet
