All the session info of this second day, in order of appearance

Releasing a huge plugin

Presented by Anton Timmermans in Trappenaula.

How we manage releasing our SEO plugin

Supporting a huge plugin is not easy. Before releasing a new version we go through a large amount of checks to make sure the release is correct. After the checks thousands of people will start downloading the plugin. In this talk I will show how we at Yoast deal with the challenges that come with the release of a big plugin. We consider every aspect of plugin development, from choosing to fix the right bugs to the scaling of the supporting infrastructure.

This is a technical talk that will deep dive into how you can take advantage of responsive images in your sites.

Front-end on steroids

Presented by Tom Janssens in Mezzanine.

Presentation about modern front-end development techniques.

With websites growing in complexity we have an increasing need for better tools to help build, test, and monitor our code. Everything from build scripts to monitoring and device testing are now important parts of the front-end developer’s job. After this presentation your front-end muscles increased by 31%.

WORKSHOP: WordPress Security

Presented by Brecht Ryckaert in Trappenaula.

In this workshop, we’ll view how hacker will try to penetrate your website, how they will go about this, how you can recognise this and prevent it/block it.

WORKSHOP: How to work together across disciplines (dev, design, editorial)

Presented by Toon Van de Putte in Mezzanine.

So, you’re building this website, theme or plugin. For a client, or in-house. Initially, all is well. But then it starts: ‘simple’ changes, disastrous assumptions about who does what, frustration, anger. How can they be so stupid, right?

In this workshop, I’ll share my experience with mixed teams and how to make them work, and I’m looking forward to your stories and questions.

Contributing teams! Round 4
