In December 2017 together with Peter Suhm from WPPusher.com, we’d just launched the basic idea of a PHP object Interface to tackle the upcoming GDPR challenges. Our Ideá was that a common interface adopted and implemented by the general community of WordPress would ensure a unified way of identifying Personal Data, and this makes it possible for the ecosystem to create plugins utilizing this interface to provide the needed tools for Website administrators to uphold the law of the regulation.
GDPRWP.com was live and a GitHub repository to go with it, with a basic readme file to explain the idea. With the help of Peters contacts, we got a few articles on WPTavern which lead to this interview for the monthly Meetup in Porto, Portugal.
This is the full article about the meetup:
Since then, the GDPR for WP project has moved forward, and to focus more on how WordPress is doing things, it’s not a strict PHP interface anymore.
