I’ll be at BlogOrlando on September 27th leading a session on Advanced WordPress. Here’s a quick preview of the topics I’d like to cover:
An overview of the best ways to scale WordPress to withstand any Digg onslaught. We’ll talk about WP-Super-Cache, Batcache and PHP opcode caches. We’ll identify common performance bottlenecks. For more detailed and generally applicable information, you’ll want to stick around for Alex Rudloff’s session on scaling!
Still using FTP to upgrade your WordPress blog? FTP is for your grandmother. We’ll talk about using Subversion to make upgrades happen in a flash.
Want a feed of all posts by guest authors on your blog that are in the “Florida” category and also mention “Disney” ? Pfft, that’s nothing. Learn how to use WordPress URL tricks to offer extremely customized feeds to your readers.
Let’s use the tricks you learned above to create a secondary loop in your theme, without disrupting the main posts loop.

The format will be conversational, so please bring your Advanced WordPress questions!
