I'll be speaking at the 2011 WordCamp Louisville this Saturday, October 1st. This will be my third time speaking at WordCamp and second time for this talk – Configuring WordPress for Multiple Environments. I gave this talk as well as moderated two unconference sessions in June at WordCamp Chicago. It was a very rewarding experience and I look forward to speaking again.
Here's the talk synopsis:
WordPress boasts a “5 minute install”. This is great for simple sites running only in a production environment. But if you're using WordPress as a development platform or following a software development life cycle things become a little tricky. This talk will cover ways to migrate WordPress between different environments smoothly, including: code, database, and environment specific tasks. Although some aspects of the talk may be advanced, there will be demos, code samples, and time for Q&A. So if you use WordPress in more than just production, this talk's for you.
In addition, VIA Studio (my day job) will be the title sponsor for WordCamp Louisville. So I'm also running a “Genius Bar” with my team. We'll be available to answer any user or development questions you may have about WordPress. I know I go to a conference hungry for answers to very specific questions. Hopefully this WordPress “Genius Bar” provides that, and of course drums up some business.
Register for WordCamp Louisville. It's only 15 bucks!
