Toronto BigWP and Developer Training Coming Soon!

The WordPress.com VIP team will be hosting both a BigWP event and a training course in the Toronto area this month, and we would love to see you there!

BigWP is a meetup event crafted specifically for professionals deploying, managing, or working with WordPress installations in enterprise environments. If you work with a large, high-traffic WordPress installation, you’ll find short and informative talks from other people who are doing innovative things with the same.

Our Developer Fundamentals II training course is designed to assist WordPress developers with learning best practices in code security and performance to help safeguard critical, high-scale WordPress environments, but you’ll learn things that apply to WordPress installations of all shapes and sizes.

BigWP

BigWP is a networking and education event focused on supporting developers, product managers, and editorial teams who run large, high-traffic WordPress sites. We’ll have a handful of short (5-10 minutes) flash talks on the following topics:

  • Scaling WordPress for High-Traffic Sites
  • Developing Gamification for WordPress
  • Powering a TV Channel with WordPress
