  • Featuring two topics –

    DOM Manipulation with JavaScript and jQuery, with Dan Berger.

    A gentle introduction to the world of JavaScript. We’ll cover element selection and event listeners with an interactive exercise that you can do in your browser’s developer tools.

    Two-Step Authentication, with Eben Gilkenson.

    Protect your WordPress logins with a 2-factor authentication system. Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds another security check to the login process, by requiring a one-time code that is sent to or generated by a mobile device or USB key. We’ll learn how to set up 2FA login options using three different plug-ins and show how to make it required for all users.

What about social tracking such as Facebook Insights? Which tools do you favor? Where are your frustration points? Who’s got a good funnel?
