Course launch! I am stoked to announce that my new video course on developing secure WordPress sites is now available at LinkedIn/!

This exclusive video course features over 30 action-packed video tutorials by yours truly. I bring together over 10 years worth of in-the-trenches WordPress experience and boil it all down into delicious, bite-size chunks. Join me in these easy-to-follow lessons for tons of tips, tricks, and techniques to help keep your sites safe and secure. In this intermediate-level course, you’ll learn how to protect your site against threats like automated attacks, bad bots, spam, and everything in between. It’s just completely action-packed from start to finish.

Update: After 5 successful years online, this video course was retired in 2021. Thank you to everyone who watched the course and provided feedback, it was an awesome experience and I couldn’t have done it without you.
