I recently found an old cd-r in a box that had a backup of my original blog that I started in 2004 at danroundhill.net (now defunct). I thought it would be a great idea to use XML files for blog entries (🤦🏻♂️)! Of course this became a huge pain to manage. I eventually coded up my own rudimentary CMS that used PHP and MySQL, and after that migrated it all to WordPress in 2006! It’s been happy ever since 😁.
We just hit the ‘Big Green Button’ on iTunes connect to release WordPress for iOS 2.8 to the masses! The biggies in this release are Stats and a really cool ‘Quick Photo’ feature. We’ve also worked with the WordPress translation community to localize the app in 10 languages.
My team at Automattic got together last week for a meetup in Milan. We worked hard on WordPress for iOS (Version 2.8 adds Stats, internationalization and a cool Quick Photo post feature!). When we weren’t working we wandered around the city streets, deciding where to eat or grab a beer (or two).
I found Milan to be quite nice, the food was tasty! I was a bit surprised at how much Graffiti was on the walls. Apparently that’s quite standard for most large European cities. The weather was nice, but apparently warmer in Glasgow and I missed out!
This weekend we’re going to actually tour Scotland a bit, including a B&B stay on the Isle of Skye. Our dear friends Beau and Bridget are just flying in now to go on the trip with us!
Here’s a bunch of iPhone shots I took throughout the week:
