Harness the Power of Time Travel with Version Control

Have you ever accidentally deleted a few lines of code that brought your WordPress theme into a bleak empty white page with no way of recovering the lost code? With revision control, travelling back in time is a breeze. Join Alex Dankoff and journey through time and space, using revision control as our Tardis.

See how quickly you can become the Time Lord of your WordPress code, creating alternate time branches and merging these multi-verse timescapes back into a single unified code base. Have you dreamt of a world where alternate realities of your code can coexist in multiple environments? Where travelling a year back in time through your code was as easy as a single command? A world where all of your code exists in a single space and can be collaborated on and shared quickly and easily? Perhaps the Doctor Who analogy is a bit much, but you get the gist.

In this session, Alex will guide you through setting up a project in GitHub and Bitbucket, from account creation and key generation to branching, committing and pushing code. Your world will never be the same.

Alex Dankoff is a senior PHP and front-end web developer with a decade of interactive marketing experience, creating innovative user experiences and complex system architectures for start-ups and multinationals.

February 26: Keeping Your WordPress Safe

Keeping Your WordPress SafeOur next event focuses on security!

Let’s face it: you never want to wake up one morning with your WordPress install hacked – or even worse, your clients’ sites.

Google flags your URL as malware. Your hosting company disables your account. Your email accounts end up on blacklists. Anything like this can put your reputation and your business in jeopardy – and that’s if you’re aware of it. A hacker can even take over a site without your knowledge!

Security is a crucial topic for every WordPress user. This event will feature of a presentation by Carl Alexander covering best practices around the configuration and maintenance of your WordPress site, followed by a “show and tell” segment. Come share your own best practices with the community. You might even learn a thing or two in the process!

Time and Location

Event: Keeping Your WordPress Safe
Date: Thursday, February 26, 2015
Time: 7-9:30pm
RSVP: Required
