WordCamp Rhode Island 2016 Slides

At WordCamp Rhode Island 2016, I ran the Contributor Day workshop. Before we got to work contributing to core, I gave a short presentation about how the WordPress development process works, and introduced them to the tools they would need to be familiar with.

Download my slides here.

I followed the Trac tickets that the participants became involved in. By my count, 5 first time contributors were credited in WordPress 4.7.

Congrats to all of the first-time contributors from WordCamp Rhode Island!

Boston WordPress Meetup Talk

This past Monday, I had the opportunity to speak at the monthly WordPress Boston meetup. If you are not familiar, WordPress meetups happen regularly all across the globe. There are several in the New England area alone.

My talk was titled Coding Standards & Best Practices !important;. I talked about what coding standards are, where you can learn more about them, and why everyone should be using them.

Ski Weekend 2016

This weekend, me and several friends went on a mini getaway to North Conway, New Hampshire. We found a great place on airbnb that was able to accommodate all of us.

When we walked in, we were greeted on the counter by a bottle of wine, and a guest book. The guest book was filled with stories from past guests answering the following questions:

  • How was the weather?
  • What were your favorite adventures?
  • Did you get discover any great restaurants?
  • Anything else you would like to share about your stay?

We spent time reading the stories in the book, which contained everything from bears climbing through the kitchen window in August to going skiing for the first time ever at Cranmore. But as we read these recollections, it was missing one thing: faces.

And that’s where this post comes in! We wrote our stories in the book for future guests to enjoy and included a link to this post in order to share photos of our trip with these future guests.

If you are reading this and are also a guest of the Tonnings, comment below and tell us about your trip.

WordCamp Providence 2012 Session Video

In case you missed it, I was able to speak at WordCamp Providence last fall. My session was entitled Plugin Development – Stirred not Shaken.

This presentation makes sense of the pandemonium of plugin development by breaking it down into three stages: planning, implementation, and release, while providing resources and discussing best practices.

If you missed it, now is your chance to get a look. Video of my presentation is now up on WordPress.tv

There are also a bunch of other WordCamp Providence 2012 session videos available.
