Jeffrey Zeldman. The godfather of web standards, the guy who first got me hooked on CSS and HTML, and who introduced me to WordPress. Zeldman.

10 years later? Zeldman.com uses a theme I helped make for WordPress.

Mind. F’ing. Blown.

I love my job. Thank you, Jeffrey, for getting me started and for continuing to inspire.

WordCamp Las Peñitas: A 1000-Hour Head Start with Underscores

I presented at WordCamp Las Peñitas in May 2014 on the _s WordPress starter theme; how it gives theme designers and developers a thousand-hour head start.

Slides (in Spanish) are available here: Ahorra 1000 horas con Underscores. For information on _s in English, check out these Underscores articles on ThemeShaper.

It was a fun and impactful event! I’m happy to see the WordPress in Latin America growing and strong, and it was great to connect with the Nicaraguan open source community. Maybe next year we’ll see a WordCamp, somewhere like Guatemala?

To see more photos from the event, here’s the #WordCampNI hashtag on Twitter and the official WordCampNI stream.

Slow Slack

Slack is an amazing chat tool for teams, we use it daily at Automattic. Unfortunately it is unusable on slow connections, something I run into sometimes when traveling; recently in Nicaragua, rural Ohio, and Silver City, New Mexico. I wish it worked better in those situations.

To their credit, the loading messages are humorous and keep me from punching the wall because I’m smiling at the clever copywriting and positive attitude.
