One of the bigger take aways from my WCEU talk is the reminder that your representation in the WordPress community is not your code but you. This talk will address the issues when we have to represent something bigger than ourselves, be it the company we work for or the community in general. How do you handle the days when people hate you for nothing more than enforcing rules? How does it feel to have your reputation shattered when you know you did right? When DO you fight back if you do at all? How do you do it without causing more harm than good? After 14 years working for a bank and 4 for a webhost, with 6 in the middle helping the .org community in support and plugins, I have a unique set of experiences to call from when it comes to remembering the biggest thing. I am not my code. And I am not the haters.
