Off to Pressnomics in sunny Phoenix for my first time ever. Looking forward to a couple days packed with thoughtful conversations about doing business with WordPress.
Woke up at 4 am. Worked on my presentation for a few hours. Went to Stafford Hills for a 45 minute swim and quick hot tub. Got feedback on my presentation from Joe. Took a call on prospective consulting project. Ate lunch — leftovers from an amazing Indian meal Leah made last night. Kissed my […]
A Day of REST — a conference devoted to the WordPress REST API. Come hear me talk about how we’re using WP-API at Fusion, along with other fabulous presenters. Thursday, January 28th, 2016 in London.
A Journey To The Center Of WP-CLI. I’m speaking at WordCamp NYC. Join me at 4:45 pm on Sunday.
Last night, I presented to ~25-30 people at the PDX PHP meetup on “WordPress as an Application Platform”.

Earlier this week, we announced our primary lineup of speakers. I suppose it’s a given because I’m the speaker coordinator, but I’d love to attend every one. They all […]
We did a second pass at our code review meetup — last night turned out much better than the first. The high point for me: most of the “presentation” was, in fact, discussion. The latter proved to be way more valuable for everyone, as most of the twenty people in the room don’t do code review […]
Code With Me, a two day introduction to HTML/CSS/jQuery for journalists, came to Portland last weekend. Even though it was beautiful weather outside, forty students and twenty mentors gathered deep within The Oregonian to improve their digital chops. Just think a bit on those numbers — that’s a lot of people. Last December, I reached […]
Oregon Day of Civic Hacking. All day on Saturday, June 1st. Ivar and I are planning to attend — looks like we might get a Code With Me contingent together too.
