Last night I gave a talk about preparing your code for the global community by making it translation ready at the WordPress Orange County developer meetup. I also showed two tools to create translations, Poedit and GlotPress. Someone also mentioned an online tool called POEditor which is free to use up to a certain number of strings. I also posted some sample code to go along with my presentation on github.
Jeff was the featured guest on Adam Silver’s podcast, Kitchen Sink WP. Check it out.
Brandon was the second host of the new podcast from John Hawkins, Hawk Talk Podcast. Check it out.
We are incredibly thrilled to announce that Jeffrey and I will be joining the new Crowd Favorite. We're excited about the opportunity to work with Karim, Alex, and the rest of the team.
If you've ever managed a BuddyPress site, you know that SPAM registrations quickly became the bane of your existence. When we built NetDivvy, we were cleaning out thousands of spammy user records every single day. It didn't take long for me to start brainstorming ways to get rid of the problem.
I was notified today that I've been invited to the first WordPress Community Summit in October. I'm humbled to say the least. The list of invitees is chock full of top-notch developers, businesses people and community leaders. I can't wait to go and represent the Orange County area.
Last night when I upgraded to WordPress 3.2 on a site we're working on, I got a WSoD on the front end of the site after I logged in. Luckily it was easy enough to fix.
Last Tuesday evening, Jeffrey and I participated in the 3rd Annual Krochet Kids international Gala. We knew that it was going to be awesome, but had no idea how much progress they have made in their efforts in Uganda. They announced that 2010 will officially mark the year that their program in Uganda was fully sustained by hat sales alone. This is a HUGE accomplishment for them. Not only are they a huge success story, but they continue to expand their business and grow as human beings.
I gave another demo of the Social me plugin this evening at the Orange County WordPress meetup. It went over well, so I think it's ready enough to get it in your hands. (don't forget to follow Jeffrey's tips on backing up WordPress before installing it). Hopefully getting it out in the wild a little bit will encourage other developers to get involved. If you're not a coder, but believe in the idea, the best thing you can do is give us your feedback so we can improve the plugin. The links to the download are after the jump.
