In a December blog post
Juliette Reinders Folmer described the upgrade path to allow projects for supporting PHP 8 alongside older versions of PHP as a nightmare.
Seeing it come up in my timeline again recently, I started thinking about the affects of type declarations on projects, especially those with a plugin architecture.
WordPress 5.6 “Simone” has now been released and is
available for download.
For the first time, the release squad was made up entirely of people identifying as women or non-binary. In some corners of the internet this proved to be controversial.
Since July last year, I’ve been lucky enough to work on the most interesting WordPress project in Australia: the WordPress foundation used for article editing on
The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and Australian Financial Review, one of the country’s most read and influential news networks.
This product can in no way can be considered a
typical WordPress instance as it is a highly customised edit screen used for creating articles. This was my second go round on the project; the first time I was a senior engineer at Human Made, working on it as a greenfield project. This time, I was an employee of Nine Publishing working on it as a mature project.
Yesterday was my last day at Nine Publishing, and after a lovely farewell get together with the team I signed out of G-Suite, Slack and I deleted my local Git repositories. Working on such a project once is privilege enough, to have the chance to work on it twice was an immense pleasure.
Swings and roundabouts but this week I am sick of it.
I’m sick of sanitising when I open the gate to our block of flats I’m sick of sanitising as I grab a take-away coffee I’m sick of sanitising as I enter the supermarket I’m sick of going shopping at 7am to avoid people I’m sick of doing the covid-shuffle as I pass strangers on the street I’m sick of walking on grass or rocks to maintain my distance when walking along the shared path I’m sick of Zoom I’m sick of being excited to get on a Zoom I’m sick of catching up with friends over Zoom instead of spending three hours talking shit in a restaurant I’m sick of movies going straight to streaming because people need it right now I’m sick of this fucking home office
I don’t think the stream, per se, was the problem with the Nick Cave concert last night. It’s was a Vimeo embed, they know how to stream and devices optimise for video. It’s the page around it that
@dicefm needs to fix.

2015 was a good year, a lot of things going on professionally and personally.
In crib note form, here are some of the highlights:
I used to get nervous in the weeks leading up to a conference talk because I was talking at a conference.
These days, it appears I get nervous for an entirely different reason: casual homophobia. Unfortunately in my industry – web development – comments such as these are not rare transgressions.
The second day of CSSConf Australia ’15 took place last Friday.
The day started with Sara encouraging developers to switch to SVG rather than unsemantic CSS hacks, and finished with a call for the open-source community to welcome designers by Una.
Here are my notes from day two.
CSSConf Australia ’15 is on at the moment.
The first day started with Matt reminding us to consider the human element of design, and finished with Ben showing how animation can be used to cheat time and add delight.
Here are my notes from day one.
