WordCamp Philippines 2009 talk: WordPress in the Wild

November 26, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Markku Seguerra just blogged about his talk in this year’s WordCamp Philippines called “WordPress in the Wild”:

WordPress used to simply be a blogging app and not much more. It’s growth in the past few years though has pushed it to adapt a more extensible structure to allow for other uses beyond blogging as well as various other customizations. These changes made it more appealing to a wider range of users, but at the same time it also introduced some performance bottlenecks that become apparent when your blog rises to be just a bit too popular. Ah, the price of success.

His slides on WordPress deployment, performance, optimization, and security are embedded in the post, but scroll down for all the important links and points covered by his presentation. A bit on the technical side, but definitely a must-read for everyone running a WordPress website.

WordCamp Philippines 2009

WordCamp Philippines 2009 was a great follow-up to the one held last year. A lot of the campters live tweeted and plurked the event, while the videographers provided a livestream.

WordCamp had a good balance of topics for both designers/developers and bloggers. Here are the slides for two of the most awaited talks that day from Automattic and Mozilla representatives:

Meet the WordPress Family by Beau Lebens

Note: even though Matt Mullenweg couldn’t make it, he made a special video just for the participants.

A quick look into the Mozilla community through the lens of localization by Seth Bindernagel

Hope the other speakers can upload their slides as well. Congratulations to the Mindanao Bloggers for another successful WordCamp Philippines!
