I recently got interviewed by Dan Milward for GetShopped.org as part of their 12 Awesome Examples of Custom Post Types article, in particular the innovative ways we’ve implemented them at WooThemes. I gave him the low down on what we did with Estate and the Tumblog themes. There’s some really interesting examples in the article, check it out. Thanks Dan!
Something I found useful while brushing up on my PHP MVC knowledge was this book by Packt Publishing.

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about it recently and the more I do, the more the thought becomes ingrained in my mind: Code is Beautiful.

I really enjoy looking deep into the heart of some code and seeing what it really is about….seeing a glimpse into the writers passion and emotions…. Continue reading “Code is Beautiful”
