I may have developing on the WordPress platform for 11 years but, as yet, I haven’t been a speaker at a WordCamp. In fact, other than at work, internally, I’ve never given a talk on WordPress at all. So, it’s with some relief that I can announce that I will “pop my cherry” next month, […]
Automattic has split. Kind of. The VIP team are now working as a separate, autonomous entity, albeit still part of Automattic, and as a result we have the inaugural VIP Grand Meetup. It’s back to Canada again, although the East coast this time.
In a couple of days I head for Montreal for the annual company meetup, the 11th trip I’ve taken with work in the last 18 months. Now, I’m not a seasoned, back-packing traveller but having to regularly head out, for anything from a few days to a week, I’m already getting pretty used to the […]

So, I thought it was time to share some of my knowledge. And, you know, little of this is mind-blowing […]
Or rather, the VIP Triage and Development teams. Yes, it's time, again, for a support team meetup and this time we're in Lisbon, Portugal.
That heading is the first line of the the Automattic Creed and now that it's 2018 it felt a good time to review what I've learnt over the next year, as well as look forward to the coming year.
