This morning, I had the honor to talk with Pippin Williamson about WordPress plugins, code, and the WordPress plugin ecosystem for WordSesh, an online WordPress conference. We had a great chat, and Pippin brought a ton of knowledge from his perspective as a professional WordPress plugin developer. I brought the perspective of a client centric developer that uses a lot of plugins.
We talked about extensibility, structure, best practices, updates, support, documentation, and more. You can check it out below:
WordSesh has been awesome in general. The conference is still happening. It’s running 24 hours straight, completely online. We had over 200 people in chat while we talked, which was fantastic.
I also spent about fifteen minutes talking with Coen Jacobs and Scott Basgaard, from WooThemes, in their talk on WooCommerce. It was very nice of them to invite me to give my perspective on WooCommerce.
I ran across this infographic on HelpScout that contains statistics about the costs of bad customer service. It’s just another great example of how important it is to deliver great service. In my opinion, great customer service can go a long way to make up for a product’s flaws.
I’m honored to have been asked to do an interview with Code Poet. Code Poet is a great resource for eBooks and other things. Their interview series is also fantastic. I was extremely excited to be asked by them to do an interview, and I hope you enjoy it. They did a really thorough job of researching personal questions to ask me, so I was able to go into much more depth than I have before. Some of the questions really made me think about things I haven’t thought of before!
I’ve talked about pricing a lot recently. Today, I read an article about pricing that’s more about hard math than theoretical pricing. So, I made a calculator using the formula the author provided and put it on its own little page here on my blog. It’s pretty amazing how some of the inputs will affect your rate. ∞
Just over a month ago, I launched Post Status. Post Status is essentially a WordPress news and information link blog, with a little extra flavor. The first month has been full of excitement, surprise, some disappointment, and a lot of fun. I like to be as open as possible, so I’m going to tell you everything on my mind about my little side project.
