WordPress security is top-of-mind with a lot of people lately with the big botnet scare that’s apparently still happening in pockets here and there. That’s why we have companies like Sucuri and their great staff that are constantly monitoring the security landscape for those that don’t know about it until it’s too late. Dre Armeda is leading a lot of that charge and in an oldie-but-goodie presentation from WordCamp Atlanta 2012 that finally got uploaded to WP.tv he goes over End-User security that’s worth a look:
Today our WPOI is Dre Armeda. Yeah, that guy. He’s been around WordPress forever and is also one-half of the Dradcast team. You’ll certainly want to get his perspective on what he thinks WordPress needs in the future.
It’s been a relative “light” week as I look back on the past 7 days – although we’ve had a record amount of posts published this past week the other sources of news articles has been relatively small. And when I say “small” I don’t mean small-small as there’s always a lot going on. Just compared to the previous week I suppose. I’m rambling. In anycase, here are some great articles that you may have missed that we didn’t cover – and don’t forget to enter into our BlogDroid Giveaway!
We’ve mentioned that DradCast was coming and it hasn’t even been two full weeks and they actually have two broadcasts in the can – nice! Using Google Hangouts they’ve recorded two episodes with Cory Miller and John Hawkins which have covered a host of topics, from theme development, GPL, the global economy, design, and more. It would be hard to pin-down exactly what each episode is succinctly about but that doesn’t really bother me at this time – I love the fresh flavor and conversation style of the work so far and how could you possibly go wrong with the world’s longest intro bumper ever?

WordPress.tv is continuing to crank out great presentations from all over the web and even more specifically from a number of the great WordCamps that have been completed in the last few weeks. There have been a handful of new presentations that you might want to check out – we’ve provided them here for quick viewing as well as their slides. Enjoy!
As we first reported here as BrAngelina and then saw a scoop here DradCast has launched as they said they would and have shared that their first episode is coming in no less than 8 days. You’ve got some new options here as well as you can sign up to be one of the hosts or even submit content. Their Host submission form reminds me of VaultPress old BETA signup form:
