WordPress: Developing Secure Sites with instructor Jeff Starr.
Leaving your WordPress site unsecured leaves you, your users, and your data vulnerable to attack. Luckily, with some basic site configuration, code updates, and free plugins, you can make an existing or brand-new WordPress site much more secure. Beginning with the basics (your backup/restore and password settings), author Jeff Starr explains how to harden WordPress by setting up user roles, configuring authentication keys, and setting proper file permissions. Plus, discover advanced WordPress security techniques to monitor user activity, implement a firewall, prevent spam, and block bots, and learn best practices for reporting vulnerabilities to WordPress and auditing your site.

Advanced WordPress: Action and Filter Hooks with instructor Carrie Dils.
Hooks are key components of WordPress plugin development. There are two types: filters modify data and actions perform tasks. Gain a fundamental understanding of how these features work, and learn how to use the built-in action and filter hooks in WordPress to build your own plugins. In the first half of the course, instructor Carrie Dils reviews the plugin API and demonstrates the basics of actions and filters. Already familiar with these core concepts? Skip to chapter three, where she covers what you need to make your own hooks. Learn about load order and writing callback functions, and using third-party hooks. Last but not least, Carrie builds a demo plugin that shows practical real-world uses for actions and filters.
