Whoa. It’s been kind of an “off” week with the big July 4th happening, but that’s ok. We’ll get back on track next week, right? in any case, let’s get down to business, shall we? Oh, and by the way, this is our 30th Weekend Roundup! Wow. Just think about that…
I hope you are having a very chill and relaxed weekend as we walk into the 4th of July week! Many of you are probably traveling this week and I hope you travel well and safely. Perhaps most importantly is that you can get offline and just enjoy family, life, and other such things that are vastly more important than *gasp* WordPress! Hahaha!
What a week – how was yours? I’m spending my time in Florida on a mini-vacation of sorts (still very-much working) and it’s been good so far. The team back home in Atlanta hasn’t let anything burn to the ground, so that’s good news. Hope you are finding some rest and relaxation this summer my friends!
A full first week of June, can you imagine that? We’ll jump right into our weekly weekend roundup but first, make sure you check out our growing Job Board that has already gotten a lot of views and has been able to connect more than a few WordPressers with new gigs! Stoked about that as, well, that’s the point!
A couple of weeks ago, we detailed a workshop that I’ll be hosting starting this Thursday in which I’ll be covering everything you need to know in order to build WordPress plugins. Specifically, the course is going to cover the following topics: Setting up a local development environment Planning the plugin Developing the plugin And preparing the plugin for release We’ll also be covering things like object-oriented programming techniques, the WordPress Coding Standards, and more. With the event starting this Thursday, Envato – one of our partners – has offered an exclusive deal to WP Daily readers: 25% off the course […]
Hope you guys are getting ready for the weekend because not only is it a holiday (if you’re in the US) but Monday is the 10th Anniversary Party! Dig it! So until then, chew on some of these links while you wait to party!
When it comes to WordPress, one of the most exciting things about the platform is the variety of ways of which we can develop products on top of it. Aside fro the typical blog, there are options for theme development, plugin development, and even application developer. If you’re a budding WordPress developer and have a desire to learn to write a WordPress plugin from the ground up, then you’ve gotta check out the Envato workshop being held by our very own Tom McFarlin later this month.
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day which means that every married man with kids (well, not all of them…) is fretting about doing something legit tomorrow. I’ll probably be at my local Target early tomorrow trying to find some crappy Mother’s Day card that means little more than the ridiculous $4.99 that I will pay for it. Hm… I can do better (and so can you)! Ok, but before that, enjoy our weekly roundup. 🙂
This is your WordPress weekend roundup – blog posts that we couldn’t entertain fully in the past week but that might still be worth your time. We spend our weekend curating this list so that you don’t have to! We hope that by spending a few hours (or more than a few hours) that we save hundreds if not thousands of our own community’s time! It is an opportunity we can’t pass up! And at this point we’ve done over 20 of these at this point! Ready? Here we go!
