Last minute speaker announcement

We have a new speaker to announce filling in on the dev track for a speaker who had to drop out for a family emergency. We’d like to thank Sam Hotchkiss for pinch-hitting at the 11th hour when we needed him! He’ll be taking the morning slot to talk about using WordPress as an API. Sam is the creator and lead developer for BruteProtect, a WordPress security plugin recently acquired by Automattic.

Chris Reynolds, who was previously going to be speaking in that morning slot, will present instead in the afternoon. Thanks Sam and Chris for being accommodating, and check out the speaker announcement for more about Sam and his topic!
