    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

    The impending release of WordPress 3.6 has been pushed back one more week to April 29.

This will allow the team time to focus on finalizing the in-progress new features so that they (and the brave folks who enjoy running beta software) can simply focus on testing and bug fixing rather than polishing up partial features.

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job. A desk is nice, but there’s no one saying that said desk has to be […]

  • Bridget Willard: You Can’t Charge for Value if You Don’t Understand Your Cost December 14, 2018 5:10 pm
    In the WordPress Community, we talk about value — quite a lot. And that’s awesome. We should charge for our value. The problem comes when we don’t understand our cost — both in financial, physical, and branding terms. Having spent over ten years in construction accounting, “job costing” is in my vocabulary and the front of my mind. But as a marketer, I also understand that WordPress has a branding problem. In order to elevate our personal brands and the brand of WordPress, it’s important that we go beyond value and take a look at cost. In this talk, I’ll discuss job costing, sample time tracking, and just how to reverse engineer your pricing to not only meet your expenses, but live the life you want.

  • Mizanur Rahaman Mizan: Contributing to the WordPress Repository in a Smart Way December 12, 2018 7:13 pm
    WordPress is world’s most popular Content Management System and it has a market share of over 25% of the World’s website. WordPress.Org community is by far the best in the web industry. WordPress.Org repository is maintained voluntarily by the contributors around the world. So, sometimes it is quite difficult to sync everything together. WordPress.Org item submission needs some extra care. In this talk, I would like to share a guided walk through how to submit an item to the WordPress repository so that it doesn’t stick a long time for reviewing and when it is reviewed it will be live with less or no effort. I will mention the most common mistakes done by the submitted both in theme and plugin repository. I will also encourage the developer to join the review team in order to shorten the waiting period of time. Reviewing is fun and educational. We learn a lot by reviewing others code and analyzing them will help us to grow also. I will also cover the basics and common issues that a reviewer should know. How do I know the most common mistakes? I have submitted my items without any prior repository knowledge. I got plenty of rejection and educative explanation from the reviewer which helped me to learn things. Some of them are so silly that I now laugh at myself. And I thought I am the only one doing those. But as I am reviewing items now, I have seen that those are commons. So I can definitely give a good talk on it which might help the community.

  • Ana Cirujano: Fuentes variables: el futuro de la tipografía web December 12, 2018 5:14 am
    La tipografía es una disciplina del diseño gráfico que estudia la composición de los textos en armonía con las imágenes y otros elementos. Tradicionalmente, en diseño editorial, los tipógrafos se han ocupado de conseguir composiciones perfectamente equilibradas y legibles, para que el lector las percibiera como agradables y fáciles de leer. Durante años ha sido muy difícil conseguir esto mismo en diseño web, ya que la tecnología no lo permitía. En los últimos años y gracias a tecnologías como OpenType o las webfonts, se mejora mucho el panorama, pero no se consiguen grandes avances, ya que se valora más la velocidad de carga de la web que su aspecto visual. Hoy, utilizando fuentes variables, podemos conseguir que los textos de una web se adapten al contexto del lector o usuario, para que sean más legibles y atractivos, consiguiendo un gran rendimiento, sin sacrificar la velocidad de carga de la web. Las fuentes variables cambian sus propiedades —como el ancho o el peso, por ejemplo— ¡utilizando un único archivo! Se espera que las fuentes variables sean totalmente utilizables en los navegadores a lo largo de este año, por lo que veremos cómo se utilizan en WordPress (código CSS) y qué ventajas tienen respecto a las demás fuentes. También veremos ejemplos reales de aplicación de fuentes variables y cómo se crea una fuente variable.Presentation Slides »

  • Ben Meredith: How To Get Better Support December 11, 2018 1:34 pm
    We’ve all had the experience of a support technician being seemingly unable to answer our questions about their theme, plugin, or service. Believe it or not, theme and plugin developers and their support techs really do want to help you. Their goal is to make sure that the technology they provide you isn’t just a sale, but useful, and, ultimately, works to make your website successful. To make sure that you are both working in the same direction, there are some things you can do to ensure a great outcome. Do you know that there’s a link between your support tickets and better documentation? Do you find yourself frustrated at developers and support reps who can’t seem to diagnose issues arising from their plugins or themes? Do you want to find better answers to your support questions, more quickly? Plus, the two-minute method of solving +50% of your support requests before you even send them.
