GitHub Announces New Unlimited Repos & Unitifed Enterprise Offering – azurecurve

I’ve recently been taking a look at ClassicPress and one of the subjects that came up was that it might, for the plugin directory, use GutHub instead of SVN like WorkdPress. I create an account and started looking into creating repositories for my plugins. Hot all of my plugins are on that site however, as not all have been released to the public. Some of them are only going to be… Continue Reading Ian Grieve’s Article on...

New Year’s Resolutions 2019 – JenKuntz.ca

Well, it’s that time of year again, and time to look back at 2018 and plan for the new year. This is the 9th year where I’ve been writing these resolution posts and it’s always fun to look back at what I thought the last year would bring. If I could describe 2018 in one word or phrase, it would be “emotional roller-coaster”. This year had more ups and downs that I’ve had in… Continue Reading Jen Kuntz’s Article on their...
