Published 2 years 8 months ago on November 19, 2014

In my client work there have been many times where a taxonomy was appropriate but I only wanted to allow a single term to be associated to each post. […]

Template Map makes my Client Work Easier

Published 3 years 1 week ago on July 20, 2014

TL;DR: Built another WordPress plugin: Template Map (GitHub) Very often my inspiration for building plugins is to make my life easier.

Published 4 years 1 month ago on June 10, 2013

An area that could have used some modification in my workflow is the optimization of third party assets when building WordPress sites. Those stylesheets and JavaScripts that make additional HTTP calls we’ve come to know and hate.

CoffeeScript and Progress

Published 5 years 4 months ago on March 7, 2012

CoffeeScript and Progress | Peter Lyons. This is a great, personal account of one programmer’s enjoyment of CoffeeScript. I must admit that I haven’t had the chance to fully delve into it on a full scale quite yet, but I’m truly itching to. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of it. There’s still […]
