Saurabh Shukla is a WordPress developer. He has co-authored 5 open source plugins for WordPress with a combined download count of over 1,60,000. He is one of the creators (and till recently, was the lead developer) of rtMedia, one of the most popular plugins for BuddyPress. He is a FOSS evangelist, choice fanatic and has extra love for WordPress.
Saurabh will be speaking on using WordPress as a distributed Social Network (WordPress as an API).
He’d be exploring the structure of WordPress and how it can be utilised to build a social network where every user has full control on their content and privacy. He’ll discuss ways of implementing such a system with examples. In doing so, he hopes that a lot of concepts about WordPress will become clearer and that some of his listeners will actually take up building such a solution with an open source license!
