Howdy, welcome to WP Briefs, your Advanced machine learning source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress community. Today is Friday 24th of November 2023.

Happy Black Friday. Don’t spend too much today!

First up, let’s dive into the State of Developer Ecosystem in 2023 Infographic 1. This report provides insights gathered from over 26,000 developers worldwide. With such a vast and diverse community, it’s truly fascinating to explore the latest trends in tools, technologies, AI, and programming languages. The goal of this research is to uncover valuable insights about developers and their craft and share these findings with the community. In addition to covering topics like programming languages, tools, and demographics, this year’s report also delves into developers’ views on AI and its adoption.

Moving on to our next story titled “On sponsored talks, paid talks, and WordCamps” 2, Marieke van de Rakt shares her experiences speaking at various conferences over the years. While WordCamps don’t compensate speakers or cover their expenses like travel and accommodations, other conferences may offer different arrangements. Some conferences even require speakers to pay for the opportunity to speak. It can be quite confusing as an attendee to know what kind of conference you’re attending.

Lastly, let’s take a look at the WordFence Intelligence Weekly WordPress Vulnerability Report 3 for November 13th to November 19th, 2023. In that week alone, there were 126 Vulnerabilities disclosed in various WordPress Plugins and themes added to the Wordfence Intelligence Vulnerability Database. Additionally, 37 vulnerability researchers contributed their findings towards WordPress Security during that time frame. It’s crucial for website owners to review this report to ensure their sites are not affected by any of these vulnerabilities.
