And So It Begins…
This past week, my mentors and I had a very productive call in which we further refined the project scope and timeline, crystalized our overall vision for the plugin, and worked through some of the logistics for the summer (communication, etc.). Mitcho, Jon, and Aaron are all incredibly talented WordPress development connoisseurs and I look forward to learning a lot from them this summer.
I spun up an AWS instance to serve as The Official WP Document Revisions Proving Grounds (a.k.a. a sandbox). The dev. environment syncs nightly off of WordPress trunk and the plugin’s repository on WordPress.org (a simple cron job / php frontend to run
svn up on demand — let me know if you want the code). I also committed the plugin header and a readme placeholder. Feel free to follow along with the development log (or subscribe to these updates via rss).
