My wife and I both gave presentations at WordCamp Raleigh 2016. Hers was titled “Teachers Make the Worst Students”, and covered how she pitched WordPress as a replacement for their old website, an overview of the technology stack, and some of the technological and social barriers she had to overcome.
My presentation was “Get Off My Lawn and Out of My Dashboard”. I covered more of the technical details of the server configuration and theme customizations that I helped Susan implement. This included: Using multiple front-end servers to distribute web traffic load; Removing certain choices from the Dashboard so that her school Webmasters would not change certain theme options or widget configurations; And when the Webmasters found a way around that, the creation of the ‘ccsd_redirect_naughty_children()’ function which made sure they couldn’t bypass our restrictions!
