Hi, I’m Josh, a WordPress developer from Minnesota.
Aside from WordPress; I’m also into biking, comics, sci fi, and trying to grow a victory garden.
I released Meteor Slide 1.5.3 yesterday. This update has some minor stylesheet tweaks to fix conflicts with the new default theme, TwentyFifteen, as well as some other common theme issues. Meteor Slides 1.5.3 also includes a new Norwegian translation and updated Swedish translation.
At WordUp Minneapolis 2014 I gave a talk on using WordPress for project management.
In this session I talked about building a simple project management app with WordPress using the P2 theme and a handful of plugins. With this app you can create to do lists, check off those tasks, and mark posts as unresolved or resolved.
I just released Meteor Slide 1.5.2, a plugin update which includes a new Slides icon and other styling adjustments to match the admin in WordPress 4.0. This update also includes some new and updated translations, bringing the total number of translations up to twenty-five!
At WordCamp Milwaukee 2014 I gave a talk on Building Better Widgets.
In this session I talked about how to design interesting and useful WordPress widgets. I covered designing for a wide range of widgets, exploring different widget designs, planning responsive widgets that scale well, thinking about animated and interactive widgets, and upgrading your widgets with plugins.
