Reviewing Plugins

for WordPress.org

WordCamp Montreal 2016

This is not a rerun.

How Do I Join?

What Is a Review?

Where Do We Get The Plugins?

Do We Really Read All The Code?

Actually ... We Cheat.

We Don't Test Everything.

We Report Everything We Find Wrong.

Why Do We Nitpick?

We Make Mistakes.

Rare Conditions Are Rare.

How Do I Join?

Not Everyone Can Handle People Well.

Not Everyone Can Handle Security Well.

Security Must Be Handled Carefully.

Responsibility, FUD, and Strategized Disclosures.

We Can't Talk About Why Any Plugin Is Closed.

Integrity, Honesty, Thick Skin, Patience.

Why Do We Do It?

THE END
