Here are my slides from my talk on WordPress and Version Control (v2, har har) from WordCamp Chicago 2012 August 25th & 26th.
- A long car ride is better shared
- Even better: a long car is best shared by a fellow geek who you can learn lots from
- Pre-conference speaker parties are the best type of party
- Grand Rapids is full of breweries
- These breweries contain lots of good food
- Don’t leave your brand new macbook air box sitting on your car seat parked in a parking lot
- If you decide to ignore the previous rule then don’t be surprised when someone has broken into your car and stolen your laptop
- Brian Richards (@rzen) knows how to make a brilliant conference badge/book
- Ryan Imel (@ryanimel) puts on a hell of show
- Brian Richards also knows how to organize one hell of a conference
- #bathroomnirvana is a thing
- I should really time out my speech a little better so I don’t finish at the 13 minute mark
- Free hoodies and shirts are really awesome
- Mark Jaquith is really tall!
- I think @jjj & @jaquith were literally the giants on who’s shoulders we stand on
- @theandystratton is a really nice guy (you know underneath the hard exterior)
- Constant stomache butterflies is not a fun way to spend 5+ days
- meeting my peers in the WP community is such an inspiring experience
- I continue to be impressed by how much utility there is in twitter
- Most especially at a gathering of people (like at a conference)
- To be so closely tied to people digitally and for that to be completely irrelevant to physical proximity is a wonder that my brain is still trying to decipher
ConferencesWordCamps are insanely amazing!
Come one, come all and learn about version control, what it is, why you should be using it RIGHT NOW and how to start using it immediately in projects you’re already working on.
If you manage to make it out make sure to say hello – I’d love to meet you!
Here are my slides from my talk on WordPress and Version Control from WordCamp Grand Rapids 2012 August 18th.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that I’ll be presenting a modified version of my talk geared more towards understanding Version Control at WordCamp Grand Rapids August 18th and 19th! If you’re in the area and want to meet some really cool WordPress peeps, you should go get a ticket!
I hope to see you there!
Recently I needed to find the location of my Apache binary. I’ve been stumped in the past searching through
/usr/sbin/ and so on. I’ve tried using
find before, but it is not even close to fast, and really shouldn’t be used just for finding the whereabouts of a binary.
Simply type in the name of the command/binary:
$> whereis apachectl /usr/sbin/apachectl
Lovely! A quick easy way to find that hard to locate binary! Thanks
