Like many entrepreneurs at one point or the other, I have often had an awkward relationship with the concept of “making money” and “getting paid,” especially in the early years of my business. Whether it’s a concern about being capable of delivering on what I promised, to a doubt that I was being greedy, I’ve wrestled often over my time as an entrepreneur on this vital subject.

Justin Salas clings to the face of a boulder, his bodyweight supported by his fingertips and one foot perched precariously on a meager crevice in the stone. He reaches up and glides his right hand over the surface of the rock, searching for the next hold he remembers is there.
Controlling the way that a data visualization lays out on your page on the fly is powerful in terms of conveying information. In the past, we’ve talked about how we can use this to hide and show information for responsive development.
Anonymous functions, the art of the callback. I’m going to propose that you never write a callback again using an anonymous function, and I’ll sell you the idea now. Firstly, what is an anonymous function? Something like this: Here’s a few reasons why you should stop doing this…

Justin Tadlock announced this week that his new ButterBean post meta box framework is now in beta. The framework is object-oriented and built on Backbone.js and Underscore.js.

Debuting at Maker Faire 2016, Nolan Moore tore down the Power Glove, then reassembled it with a Wi-Fi transmitter, flex sensors and a wealth of additional components to transform it from so-so retro peripheral into a powerful controller that can alter the course of a drone with simple hand movements.
When we asked whether or not WordCamp afterparties should be alcohol free, WP Tavern readers responded passionately. A majority of commenters argued that the afterparty is a social event and that alcohol is a social lubricant established in societies across the world.

HARRISBURG – Since Attorney General Kathleen Kane took office in 2013, her administration has been pulled into court and labor hearings by employees claiming they were unfairly or illegally demoted, suspended or fired in violation of union contracts or the constitution.

Bill from Georgetown writes: Just curious, what made you choose Behat for [WP-CLI] testing rather than PHPUnit like WordPress core, EDD and a lot of other big WordPress plugins?

WordPress makes up 25% of the internet, which is huge, and we need to make sure we can preserve WordPress sites for future generations. WordPress, by nature, is dynamic. The majority of content is produced by PHP and compiled at run time. Exporting and preserving an entire WordPress site as you see in the browser isn’t easy.

If autistic people like my teenage son make you uneasy, you’re wrong-but it may not entirely be your fault. Our media conditions its audiences to fear and pity people with disabilities. And it’s not just sensationalistic, clickbait media outlets that impugn the rights and basic humanity of autistic people.
WordPress has achieved its goal of democratizing the web. As a platform for publishing content it excels. Look no further than the recent 25% of the web statistics for proof of that.
