Speaker Spotlight: Ron & Andrea Rennick!

WordCamp Montreal is only a few weeks away! We’re as excited as ever about this event. We’ve prepared a speaker spotlight series that will show off some of our speakers at this years event!

I’m happy to present our next spotlight, Ron & Andrea Rennick!

Ron & Andrea Rennick specialize in the network/multisite feature of WordPress, ranging from custom plugin development to commercial plugins and ebooks at wpebooks.com. Both are active in the core WordPress development and support communities and Ron has the rare honor of being a “core committer” to the WordPress project. Find Ron and Andrea on Twitter.

Ron & Andrea will be hosting a Q&A session titled Multisite basics and Q&A with the experts.

Why WordPress?

Ron Rennick

That’s like asking why I decided to breath oxygen. It just is.

Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Montreal?

We’re from New Brunswick, and this is the closet Canadian WordCamp to us. So we’re using “local” very broadly. 🙂 And it’s a great city! We’re even heading up a couple days early to take in some sights.

What is your talk going to be about?

II’l be speaking with my husband and partner Ron about the most common multisite questions – with answers! We’ll go over the top ten or so questions we get and leave plenty of discussion time.

What are you most looking forward to at WordCamp Montreal?

I’m tempted to say bagels, but really it will be meeting up with familiar faces and seeing new ones. The people in the community are the best part.

What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?

I’d like people to walk away with a better understanding of how multisite works internally, what to use it for and when not to use it. At the very least, I’m going for “less scary”.

What is your favourite WordPress plugin, and why?

Hmm, that’s like asking which child of mine is my favorite! 😀 One plugin I like a lot, because it should be in core, is the snack bar plugin. It adds extra links to the admin bar for managing the subsites when using multisite.
