Some of you may have seen the announcement of a new WP-CLI package known as Dictator. Dictator allows you to define the “state” of your WordPress install. It keeps a running record of your WordPress configuration options, broken up into three categories. “Settings” stores basic site information like title, description, and active theme and plugins. “Users” stores the name, email, and display_name of each user. “Terms” holds categories, tags, and other post metadata. All of this information is stored neatly in a small YAML config file. That way, you can hand off a config file to various members of a […]
Great timing too as it’s going to be difficult to forget when the proposal was officially as it’s so close to WordPress’ own birthday. If you’re a guy then you know this as it can be incredibly tough to remember particular and important dates! Congrats to Daniel Bachhuber who proposed at a Rodeo this past Sunday! He shares more of his story (and asking for Leah’s hand in marriage via his future father-in-law) on his own blog.
It seems that Human Made may be the place to head these days if you’re a well known WordPress celebrity (can we call them “Presslebrity”?) and are looking to build a stacked team of talent, right? Of course this is mostly tongue-in-cheek, but it is great to hear that Noel Tock has joined the likes of Daniel Bachhber and Paul de Wouters via his announce post late yesterday: I’m proud to announce that I will be joining the Human Made family as a partner, responsible for all products (as opposed to client work/consulting). With this change, comes consolidation. Part of upping our game requires […]
Well, the speculation is over – Mr. Bachhuber has joined Human Made Limited as a Senior Engineer joining the likes of such people like Joe Hoyle, Paul de Wouters, Tom Willmot, Owain Cuvelier, Theo Savage, and the often-quoted and opinionated (hey, that’s a good thing folks!) Noel Tock. Human Made, a WordPress-centric development shop, has been around for a bit and has had some large clients in their expanding portfolio. Apparently Daniel had done some work in the past with them so he was familiar with their culture and the way they do business. He shared a bit on an announce […]
Crazy week, right? It’s been one for the record books for me personally as I’ve been attempting to finalize a Kickstarter campaign and project that has pretty much hijacked my entire life. At some point I’ll have a massive retrospective, but I’m exhausted with only a day or so to go. But naturally there’s been more news than just Kickstarter project – here are some of the things that happened this previous week that you may not have gotten to see. Oh, and by the way, make sure you’re aware of the big super bot that’s attempting to access your […]
Daniel, who was part of the VIP Services team at Automattic, has announced that he’s left the role just shy of two years of employment there. Citing the fact that he hasn’t felt like his personal growth was at an acceptable pace he’s looking for a more “challenging opportunity,” one that will push him to “learn, grow, and lead.” Daniel is a guy that most of this team subscribe to and he’s incredibly bright and eager to move on to the next big thing – he’s even open to hearing about new opportunities, so feel free to drop him a […]
This past week has been an absolute blur – busyness hit an all-time high today as I had a keynote at a conference early in the morning, my daughter’s soccer game, and 3 back-to-back-to-back birthday parties and then my wife had a girl’s night out while I took care of the kids. Whew. I’m drained. But it’s a “good” type of drained, you know? Hope you’re having a great weekend yourself. With that, here’s your Weekend WordPress Roundup:
It’s been an insane week – and it’s been nothing short of a miracle. Finishing our Epic Gaming Mural, Holding our Jelly Event, organizing and finishing out WordCamp Atlanta (and the VIP after party), launching a Kickstarter Campaign, and managing all the other “normal” things in life – yikes, it’s just been insanity! We’ve been getting a few hours of sleep each night, if we’re lucky. As you can see, Chris is trying to recover… at 8:00am in the morning. But without further ado, here you go:
Yikes. It’s been a busy Saturday and I’m finally getting around to compiling our weekly review of content that we didn’t get to cover explicitly over the last 7 days. In a good way I’m glad as I spent most of my time today with family. Soccer games, a date with one of my daughters, and then the park with my other one has left me spent. I hope your weekend has been as eventful as mine already as well!
