Doc Pop’s News Drop
Love WordPress news, but hate reading? This is Doc Pop’s News Drop.
Last week was a huge week for GitHub who made several big announcements during their two day GitHub Universe conference in San Francisco, which was attended by 1500 people. The company announced new profile pages which better display each user’s history, the ability to review incoming pull requests on projects that you manage, and a brand new project management system which can be used to keep track of bugs, feature requests, and upcoming issues.
This project management system is one of the most exciting new features, though I’m not sure if my team is ready to switch from Trello to GitHub. The announcements come just ahead of the 9 year anniversary of the first commit which is next month For more news on GitHubs announcements, run over to GitHub.com
Speaking of running, Automattic has announced the return of the World Wide WordPress 5k. This year Automaticians will be running to raise money for Soles4Souls. Anyone can participate by running or walking their own 5K and sharing the story online using the tag WWWP5K. This sounds like a great excuse to take your favorite Pokemon out for a nice walk. If you do, be sure to visit https://soles4souls.org/ and consider making a donation too.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to find us on @TheTorqueMag on Twitter.
