This will probably be the final “WordPress Weekly Recap” of 2016. It has been an amazing year. BackupBuddy kept getting more powerful and accessible with Stash Live. iThemes Security got completely rewritten for an even more solid security base. iThemes Sync became a must-have tool for freelancers around the world managing multiple WordPress sites. And even the training side saw the 16th WordPress Developer Course happen that pushed the training library close to 900 hours of recorded training. 2017 is going to be a great year.
