I liked this article from WPCandy on the shift from PHP to jQuery:

Day 3 of #wcphx

wordcamp1

Day 3 of WordCamp Phoenix has started. There is already a great turnout, and there is a long list of great talks that are happening today. It is happening at GangPlank.

If you wish up, you may be able to get your hands on a new form of currency!

Day 2 of WordCamp #wcphx

WordCamp Phoenix was so awesome. I would like to thank everyone who came by the WPEngine table to say hello. Everyone at the table really felt the love.

Where does my background come from?

I am getting asked this over email a lot, so I will post it here. The background image I am currently using for my theme (which is below, in case I change it later) came from a picture I took of a concert. It was the Crystal Castles show at Austin City Limits 2012. It was a fantastic show. I highly recommend checking out Crystal Castles if you like crazy electronic music.

A couple people put some YouTube videos of the show here.

 

Day 1 of WordCamp Phoenix #wcphx

It’s WordCamp time! Dance-Dance-Dance-Dance!

For those of you who are going to WordCamp Phoenix, but not showing up for the first day, you are missing out big time. There are 4 different classes that you can attend that cover a full range of topics. Each track caters to a wide range of technical levels. I will be in the 301 track. If you happen to see me walking around, don’t hesitate to say “HELLO!”

Ready! Set! GOO!

First Post and WordCamp Phoenix #wcphx

Holy crap, I am writing a blog post!

So after working on WordPress for years, I have finally decided to launch my own blog. Cray-Cray, I KNOW!

My goal is to write a couple blog posts a week, which will be interesting since I barely have any free time these days. Hopefully I will keep this up.

Now for something serious, WordCamp Phoenix 2013 is upon us! Last year WordCamp Phoenix was a lot of fun, and I even had an opportunity to present. I was very nervous about the whole presentation, but I think it went over well. At least the beginning part did (the part where I wasn’t talking).

I won’t be presenting this time around. My partner in crime Mark Kelnar will be presenting on “Adding Source Control to your Life,” at 3:10 PM (MT). We will both be in attendance representing WP Engine, along with Ben Metcalfe, so feel free to come by and say “HELLO!”
