If you’re a developer and release code to the public: own your mistakes don’t blame your users for them. — Dan Cameron (@dancameron) September 10, 2014 Someone on the Advanced WordPress Facebook group posted this about how he was frustrated how plugin updates were being handled by a certain developer. That arena is definitely not the […]
As a follow to my EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Proposal I’d like to share my solution. Let me set this up for you first. Here’s the pricing options for Sprout Invoices. Note: the customer pays the “Signup Fee” and the “Price” initially, I’ve written about a proposal to change this already. The discount is for 25% off […]

I always referred to implementers as defined in this article as “marketers” but knew it was a bad choice of words.
I have been releasing plugins and themes since the early days (~1.0) and I’ve been doing professional WordPress development for 6 years, but I only recently realized that I’ve become out of loop with the WP community. There’s so many new sub-groups: premium sellers, WP agencies and a ton of shops. Looking back (beyond 6 years ago) I fit into a few […]
I never wanted to write about this topic but after seeing this today I couldn’t help but share my Alzheimer’s experience. If you watch Seth Rogan’s testimony you’ll briefly hear about his mother-in-law and the complications, conditions and problems they had; my mom had those very same issues, exactly the same. After years of trying […]
It’s been a long journey and even though you still kick butt encoding video you’re too big and you can’t run OS X Mavericks (officially).
