Zack Tollman does a wonderful job of explaining WordPress’ internal caching parts in an excellent post over on his blog. If you are curious about what WordPress caching really entails you should definitely check it out.
I bet that when Mike Little commented on Matt Mullenweg‘s B2 blog ten years ago, he didn’t realize what the both of them were about to start, which was nothing short of a revolution! Their brainchild is what we’ve come to use and love and know as WordPress. From the bottom of my heart: thank you Matt and thank you Mike for starting this thing.

Anyone who has been active in the WordPress Community for a few years has read, commented on or learned in some way shape or form from WP Tavern and Weblog Tool Collection. When both were transfered into someone else’s hand it a while back it was pretty much, clear to anyone with the deduction skills of either a front-end developer or a plugin builder, that the new owner had to be Matt Mullenweg 😉

If you are building complex websites – or rebuilding them – the use of a so called “DTAP street” is very useful. Over the past few years I’ve been working a lot with DTAP and WordPress, of course. Here’s my experiences and the choices I made.

Using a DTAP street is all about managing the development and release of entirely new software or just for a newer release of the software already in production. When using a DTAP street in web development you are in fact using at least four environments and versions/copies of your website:

.. well, now is as good as time as any. WordPress 3.6 is getting closer to it’s release, but it’s not quite there yet. Lot’s of CSS stuff needs attention as well, so there’s really no excuse anymore. Go and make yourself immortal!
It has been interesting lately to see how WordPress enthusiasts have been finding creative ways to get together. We all know WordCamps and meetups, of course, but in the last months we’ve seen the birth of the regional WordCamp, BuddyCamp, WordUp (a kind of larger meetup/un-conference), WP Camp, and even WP OnTour (whatever happened to that?).
