“Don’t dig latrines with a Swiss army knife”

Tim Nash 2014


An antidote to Kimb Jones (inevitable and great) Wow Plugins talk. Not every plugin is a “wow” plugin most just do a single job and some do them really well, often not glamorous but essential these plugins are the backbone to millions of site but how do you find these day to day plugins? How do you work out if they do what they say? How do you check if they will slow your site down or even harm it? Good Questions, guess we need a talk on sourcing and evaluating plugins to answer them?
