Intensive VIP Developer Workshop

Once a year, we hold a 3-day, intensive developer workshop for WordPress.com VIP clients and select guests. The content includes deep dives into topics affecting our VIPs as well as strategy, roundtable, and emerging trends in the world of WordPress. The curriculum can often include WordPress coding standards, security, caching, optimizing themes and plugins, implementing new core WordPress, .com, and VIP features, and we continually tailor the curriculum based on registered participants’ input for their preferred sessions.

During the event, there is a focus on networking as well as collaborative sessions where WordPress.com VIPs share their own experiences with building VIP-scale websites using WordPress, their workflows, shortcuts, and best practices, too.

Planning for v4, the 2015 edition of the WordPress.com VIP Workshop, is already underway! Stay tuned for more details.
