WordCamp London 2015 ( Twitter hashtag #wcldn ) promises to be a great weekend.
I plan to attend for all three days, starting with Contributor Day on Friday the 20th March london.wordcamp.org/2015.
I’ve got a bucket list of things to do, some copied from my WordCamp Birmingham bucket list.
If you think you can help with any of these, please find me and have a chat.
- Further work on TRAC 29608
- Find better – more performant – hosting, including CDN, cacheing, etc. Siteground, WP Engine or what?
Note: Hosting purchased and sites set up ready for head to head comparision.
- Find better solutions to the QAD hacks I recently implemented for performance issues
- Talk to people(*) about WooCommerce extensions: Weight Country Shipping, Cost Country Shipping, and Variation swatches
(*) Lee Willis in particular about plugins.leewillis.co.uk/doc_post/destination-weight-shipping-woocommerce
- Find out how to use PHPStorm 8 with WordPress code
starting point www.rarst.net/wordpress/in-phpstorm
- Feel (more) comfortable with GitHub pull requests
- Find an AJAX solution for pagination
- Decision on using endpoints versus manually created pages for displaying common content
Updates 19th March
- Get Brad Williams to sign my copy of “Professional WordPress Design and Development, Third Edition”
- batch attach for my SB images
- Find some worthwhile paid work
Updates 20th March
What I actually did at contributor day.
- Didn’t see any eclispe
- Instead of working on TRAC 29608 I revisited creating a test case for TRAC 29714. Very little progress as it involves actually requesting the admin page. John Billion wonders whether or not a solution using behat might be needed in the future.
- Endpoints: had a good chat with Simon Wheatley, who suggested I looked at his solution in github.com/simonwheatley/wcldn-web-addresses
- Got my GitHub instance working again. It seemed to have lost all my repositories.
- Talked about solutions for image filters with Marko Heijnen and others
