Your Website & the GDPR, Cookie Plugin Reviews, Create a Dev Environment & More!

June 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation law goes into effect May 25th, 2018. The world is taking this seriously and whether you have users in the EU or not, you need to know what’s required of your website. Other countries will follow, so best to learn enough to protect your website.

GDPR Speakers:

We are planning on having a few speakers to talk on GDPR including:

Chris Christoff runs the Analytics and eCommerce division at AwesomeMotive, where he leads development of MonsterInsights and ExactMetrics (formerly GADWP), both top 20 plugins, and the largest and second largest Google Analytics plugins for WordPress respectively, with a combined 3.5 million active installs. Chris is also heavily involved in the WordPress community as a member of the WordPress Core Security Team, a frequent WordPress core contributor (and 2x Recent Rockstar), lead of several security releases, over a dozen WordCamp talks, and a WordPress Core Trac gardener. When he’s not working on code, he’s contributing to articles on WPBeginner, another AwesomeMotive production, and the largest free resource for WordPress beginners.

Plugin Reviews:

We will also review some Cookie Policy Pop Up plugins and find out which is the best choice for your website.

TALK: DEV or DIE!
