    Random Thoughts on…Six Months of Using Gutenberg

    It's been a little over six months since I wrote my first post in Gutenberg (and it was about Gutenberg). In that time, I've published 18 posts using Gutenberg. It still has ways to go before I think it's going to be great, but it's continuouslyĀ solving my needs on this site. When I originally posted […]

  • Random Thoughts On…Product Engineering

    Random Thoughts On…Product Engineering

    For the past 5.5 years, I've been a part of the product engineering leadership at a couple of organizations. While I'm not sure if these ideas translate to client services, I know that they have all been valuable to me as I work long term building products and brands. It's important to periodically reevaluate your […]

  • WordPress Core Committer Stats: 2017

    2017 is coming to a close, and unless someone commits something very soon, WordPress Core developmentĀ is at rest (since we have an API to do that now). This is the third year I've compiled these stats, see the 2016 committer statsĀ for some of the backgroundĀ information. I'm going to share the stats and then share my […]

    A Sabbatical from Speaking in 2018

    Normally, when a year comes to a close I start to brainstorm about talks and presentations I want to give in the coming year.Ā  I copy over a doc in Simple Note and start pruning off talks I've already given or ideas that no longer excite me and add in new ideas where I feel […]

  • My WCUS 2017 Watchlist

    I didn't make it to nearly as many WordCamp US Sessions as I would have liked. This year was packed full of quality talks.Ā  Rather than leave a bunch of tabs open, I'm going to list out all the talks I hope to watch here. There are more talks that still need to be uploaded, […]

  • Getting started with Jest

    In the past, my automated testing for javascript was done in either QUnit if it was a browser app or Mocha if it was a node app. On a new project, I decided to kick the tires on Jest and thus far, I really like it. It did have a bit of a learning curve […]

  • Three Years as a WordPress Committer

    Three Years as a WordPress Committer

    Three years ago today, I changed three lines of code in WordPress and did it without someone else signing off.Ā  In fact, I didn't write the code that went into WordPress that day. I've not been a high volume committer in my three years ( I've made 283 total commits), but I have had the […]

  • Falsehoods Programmers Believe about Versions

    Inspired by the list of falsehoods programmers believe about namesĀ and falsehoods programmers believe about time, here are some Falsehoods programmers believe about Versions and some examples of the falsehoods. Versions are always numbers When versions are numbers, they will always be sequential (See PHP 6) Software never changes how they use versions (see Firefox) When […]

  • Why I love Captioning for Conferences

    Why I love Captioning for Conferences

    If #srccon was Happy Days, the transcribers would be the Fonz. Total breakout characters. All conferences should have them. — Aaron Jorbin (@aaronjorbin) July 26, 2014 I had been to conferences with live transcription before, but SRCCON 2014 was my first time seeing them at a mainstream conference. The transcription services even inspired a battle […]

  • Gutenberg and Publishers: unconference notes from WordCamp for Publishers

    At WordCamp for Publishers, I hosted an unconference session on "Gutenberg and Publishers". There were forty people overflowing a conference roomĀ who worked at agencies, publishers, universities, hosting companies, as freelance developers and writers, and one person who described theirĀ affiliation as "I left my backpack at the bar last night and lost my name badge, and […]
