There are so many great WordCamps going on that it’s hard to keep track of them all! But we’re committed to helping cover them as they come and go and provide you resources that are publicly shared via each one! WordCamp Toronto finished early last month and the slides and decks are finally being uploaded and shared – there are some incredible presentations that were given that you may want to give a few seconds. Like many WordCamps, they broke it out into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced tracks to help conference goers spend their time wisely. Here’s a master list […]
Apparently Jason Bradley likes to do local development on his bus ride into work as opposed to listening to music or catching up on some Zzz’s. Got some fun pics of you and WordPress like this (or like this)? Send them to us via Submit News and on the drop-down mark “Community Photos”!
No worries here but it seems the core team, after a few issues with TinyMCE last night, has decided to have another Release Candidate prepped and then at least a 24 hour freeze with changes to the trunk. They are asking people to boot it up, test it, and see if you can break it. In fact, Andrew Nacin shares exactly what needs to be reviewed:
We are so excited to announce a brand new podcast affectionately called Hello Dolly. For those that have been around WordPress for a while (and ever installed a self-hosted version) then you’ll immediately get the reference that we’ve created here! It’s a true throwback and hat tip to the greatest jazz-related WordPress Plugin ever and represents a very similar mission: This is not just a [podcast], it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong. Obviously we’ve exchanged the word podcast for plugin in this instance but you get […]
WP 3.5 tomorrow no longer looking good. Dear TinyMCE, you and I are breaking up after this. — Andrew Nacin (@nacin) December 10, 2012 It looks like not all is well in release land as some issues appears to have cropped up with TinyMCE per a few tweets that have been passing close to midnight tonight, the above via @Nacin. @Koop, another core developer, had this to say about the release that was scheduled to appear tomorrow at 11:00am EST:
Apparently one of the goals of flying your entire WordPress team into the same geographically region is so that you can beat the living snot out of each other with colored paint. Ah, the simple joys of dishing out pain to your friends…! Check out this short video they created which appears to be a teaser for a much larger feature coming out shortly.
If you’ve been around the core development team for some time then you know that there have always been a leadership structure that is followed so that stuff simply gets done. Most organizations have some sort of reporting mechanism and structure that exists so that productivity remains high. Earlier this year WordPress started experimenting with “Team Reps” which is not the same thing as “Team Leads” – this distinction helped distribute the responsibility of providing updates about progress to others to keep the net of responsibility wide without letting things slip through the crack. This position would be temporary, allowing […]
Andrew Norcross, one of the senior developers for Raven Tools, sports a sweet new hand tattoo that combines his obvious love for coffee and WordPress.
Yup, we’ve got a Facebook Page and we simply need 11 more “likes” to get that coveted Vanity URL. Sure, we’ll eventually hit it, most likely this coming week, but why wait? If you’ve got a moment then feel free to up our count and then share it with a few others. Appreciate it kindly guys! Thus ends your Saturday PSA. ***Update*** We did it. Thanks all! We now own http://www.facebook.com/wpdailyco You guys rock!
Clearly we aren’t using your typical .com or .net or even .org top-level domain. The main reason is quite simple: The others weren’t available. But we think this is to our advantage since the .co extension seems to fit us better. Culturally, more and more organizations are choosing .co to stand for not just company but also for “community” and “collaboration.” We think this fits nicely into what we’re trying to do. Sure, we’re a company as well, but we’re a company of passionate WordPress users. I almost see it as somewhat of a “Band of Brothers” (women welcome too, […]
