  1. WP Think Tank →

    I will be participating in the WP Think Tank round table discussion next Thursday. The panel group is fantastic – I’m quite looking forward to it.

  2. Burying the URL →

    URLs = independence; that’s why they are so important. I’m curious to see how the next generation, one that has grown up with the web, sees these things.

  3. Surviving UI Programming →

    I used to do primarily front-end web development (UI coding) before getting into the back-end stuff. The back-end stuff is less fiddly and feels more elegant. Whenever I do front-end work it always feels like I’m writing more code that I should be (generally to handle lots of edge cases). But I love creating a great user experience, and that means fiddly front-end code.

  4. Constants and Reading and Writing →

    I preach the same thing, my reasons don’t just include readability, but simplicity and searchability too.

    Where are we handling 200 responses?

    I’ll search for “200”… there it is.

    I especially encourage this in WordPress dev when relating to WordPress post meta keys, filter and action names, etc. It makes refactoring easier too.

  5. Write Code Every Day →

    This starts next week for me (after vacation). I needed this as a kick in the patoot; I’m not making progress at the speed I want to on my current project and a big part of that is context switching costs for days when I don’t get to code. We’ll see how I do.

  6. Executive Retreats →

    My retreat a few years back with Dan and Scott was awesome. I can see how doing it with just your own team would also be awesome; in a different way. There are definitely some ideas that require distance to soak in them properly.
