I’m currently listening to around 30 podcasts each week, but Kitchen Sink WordPress is always the first one I start with. Adam does an awesome job of squeezing a lot of quality content into a short time. In addition to learning new tips, tricks, and tools, you’ll also hear what WordCamps are coming up, interviews, listener questions and answers, and more! He’s completely transparent, not only with products or services he uses or recommends but what he’s personally doing and whether it’s working or not.

I was lucky enough to meet Adam Silver at WordCamp Dayton 2015, my first-ever WordCamp. I’ve seen him at a couple WordCamps since then. He is always very friendly, knowledgeable, approachable, and it seems like his sense of humor is very close to mine. Thanks for producing a wonderful podcast, Adam – and for being a great example for others in the WordPress community!

#100DaysOfCode: My Challenge to Code for 100 Days in a Row

#100DaysOfCode Challenge

In case you haven’t already heard of it, 100 Days of Code was started by Alexander Kallaway and is just like it sounds:  you commit an hour of coding every day for the next 100 days.  I’d recommend checking out his article explaining it in more detail.

I’ve dabbled in code for a while and can do some things as long as I have documentation to go by.   It’s been hard for me to find time to code much because this isn’t job-related; It’s simply a hobby I really enjoy.

Now I’m making time to begin my first round of #100DaysOfCode.  I say first round because I intend to focus primarily on WordPress and PHP.  The next time I do this I will be working on JavaScript and front-end development.

My goal for this challenge is to build a strong foundation of PHP and WordPress.

The Rules

    • I will code a minimum of one hour every day for the next 100 days.
    • I will tweet my progress every day using the #100DaysOfCode hashtag.
    • I will push my work to GitHub every day, where applicable.

Happy Kamehameha Day From the New GeoffreyShilling.com

Happy Kamehameha Day!  Today is in honor of King Kamehameha I, also known as Kamehameha the Great. He united the Hawaiian Islands into a royal kingdom in 1810.  Read more about King Kamehameha Day.

What does Kamehameha Day have to do with support or development?  Nothing!  But, as you’ll see from time to time, I have a strong passion for Hawai’i and thought this would be a fun day to launch this revised site.

If you’ve been to GeoffreyShilling.com before, it probably looks a bit different.  I’ve decided to turn this site into my place to share stuff related to WordPress support and development.  The content that was here has been moved to what will become more of a family blog at Shilling.blog.
