Computer Science in WordPress

Last year I did a presentation at WordCamp Orange County, WordCamp Birmingham, WordCamp Toronto, and WordCamp Providence called “What You Missed in Computer Science”. I have a Computer Science degree which I believe has provided me with some tools to think about problems in a certain way. This presentation will teach you about some of those tools, specifically Big-Oh Notation and race conditions. I will frame these Computer Science topics in terms of WordPress.

You can see a video recording of me giving the talk here at WordCamp Providence. I am reposting the slides on SlideShare since they seem to have disappeared:

WordCamp Ottawa

This weekend I was lucky enough to present at the 2nd annual WordCamp Ottawa. My talk was titled “Saving Time with WP-CLI”. WP-CLI is a plugin that lets you interact with your WordPress installations via the command line. My talk runs through some cool built-in WP-CLI commands as well as creating custom commands. My slides for the talk are here:
