We’re proud to announce that Heart Internet are again sponsors of WordCamp London, happening on March 18th and 19th at the London Metropolitan University.
Running for its fourth year, WordCamp London is a chance for the UK WordPress community to get together to discuss ideas, share knowledge, and express their love of WordPress. Whether you’re just starting out with your first blog, or you’re using WordPress as the base for hundreds of sites, a WordCamp is the perfect place to get more involved.
And with 44 speakers across three tracks, there are plenty of talks covering a huge range of topics. Here are just five we’re excited about:
Encrypt All The Things: Practical Encryption from SSL to Email and Beyond by Chris Wiegman
Saturday, Track A, 14:00
Everyone might be talking about SSL and making sure their users have complicated passwords, but Chris Wiegman is going to get into even more ways you can ensure you’ve protected your data and your privacy.
How WordPress Malware Works and How to Clean an Infected Site by Owen Cutajar
Saturday, Track A, 16:10
It’s what everyone dreads – your site has malware. But what do you do? Owen is going to go through how you can keep your WordPress site secure, how sites can get infected, and what you need to do when it happens.
Making Your Website More Inclusive Using Tone by Alice Still
Saturday, Track C, 16:10
The tone of voice you choose for your website affects not only how you present yourself, but also affects how your users feel. Alice will give you examples of subtle changes you can make to your own website to help bring in more customers.
How to Grow from Freelancer to Agency Owner by David Lockie
Sunday, Track C, 10:20
It’s a daunting step, going from being a one-person band freelancing around to hiring staff and building up your own agency. David ‘s been there and he’ll go through how to create a company culture, how and when to make hires, and how to ensure your employees stay on board for the long run.
Tales from the Client Side: How to Create and Foster Loving Client Relationships by Tom Chute
Sunday, Track A, 11:20
It’s easy to blame the clients for everything, but when a project goes off the rails, building animosity helps no one. Tom talks about how he salvaged his own sour client relationships, and how you can also learn how to foster a positive relationship with yours.
Add on to that the amazing social event on Saturday evening, the wide range of sponsors, including Jetpack, WooCommerce, WPML, and us (of course!), and the always enlightening Contributor Day on Friday, 17 March, and it’s three days of WordPress fun.
