WordPress Hosting Live Edit

The WordPress HostingHosting A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Team promotes a series of live events focused on teaching elements promoted by the team and reaching all users.

The main WordPress Hosting Live site will be at meetup.com/wphosting, hosted at Make Hosting and in collaboration with the Learn WordPress team. You can also find the streaming at Youtube and Twitter.

What is it? What is it?

The original idea of this project was to have streaming events in which a person directs the event as a host, and one or more people give a presentation on a particular topic. Afterwards, there would be a round of questions and answers. The initial platform for broadcasting will be Youtube live, although other systems may be considered.

Other alternative systems can be to have group conversations in Zoom mode in which everyone can participate more dynamically.

The topics The topics

The subject of these events have to be around the world of hosting and what the team usually works on. Among them we can have:

  • ServerServer A server is a piece of computer hardware or software that provides functionality for other programs or devices. Typical servers are database servers, file servers, mail servers, print servers, web servers, game servers, and application servers. Environment (PHPPHP PHP (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a general-purpose scripting language especially suited to web development. PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter. On a web server, the result of the interpreted and executed PHP code would form the whole or part of an HTTP response., MySQLMySQL MySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS). MySQL is free and open-source software under the terms of the GNU General Public License., nginxNGINX nginx is a web server that can also be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy and HTTP cache. Nginx is free and open-source software, released under the terms of the 2-clause BSD license.…)
  • Web Performance (cachingCache A cache is a component that stores data so that future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation or a copy of data stored elsewhere., CDNCDN A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers. The goal is to provide high availability and performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end users. CDNs have grown to serve a large portion of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social media sites., configuration…)
  • Reliability (backupsBackup A backup is a copy of computer data taken and stored elsewhere so that it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups can be used to recover data after its loss from data deletion or corruption, or to recover data from an earlier time. Backups provide a simple form of disaster recovery., monitoringMonitoring Website monitoring is the process of testing and verifying that end-users can interact with a website or web application as expected. Website monitoring is often used by businesses to ensure website uptime, performance, and functionality is as expected.…)
  • Security (firewall, permissions, updates…)

Level of presentations Level of presentations

The talks can be directed to users of any level. While it is true that local Meetups tend to reach all types of users, this channel was designed to raise the level of hosting professionals and teach or discuss topics that are not usually covered.

Some ideas for presentation titles:

  • WordPress and the new PHP version
  • How we manage updates and maintenance
  • Optimizing hosting for WordPress sites
  • Complex and distributed WordPress installations

Languages Languages

Although the main language used in the WordPress Community is English, and the main language of the presentations (initially established once a month) will also be English, presentations in other languages will be included from time to time, in an effort to ensure that the goals of this initiative will reach as many people as possible, regardless of where they are or what language they speak. The more people we can reach, the better!

Presentations Presentations

As with any WordPress event, there are a number of limitations that apply across the board. These are included for the good of the global WordPress Community.

  • The first slide will include the title of the presentation, the name of the speaker and, if it is a derivative work, the original authors.
  • The second slide will include a presentation card of the speaker(s). In this slide you can inform about the company or business relationship you have, include logos, the page and social networks of the speaker.
  • The rest of the slides may not include any mention or commercial logos. As a general rule, no hashtags or social network accounts may be included.
  • The last slide can include a closing message (in Thank You! mode) as well as a link to the speaker’s personal website, personal email account or personal social networks, in case anyone viewing the presentation wants to get in touch.
  • The presentation must be under GPLGPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License. It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing. The GPL is a "copyleft" license. This means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms. This is in distinction to permissive free software licenses, of which the BSD license and the MIT License are widely used examples. or compatible licenses (EUPL, etc…).
  • The Code of Conduct must be observed at all times.
