June 30, 2016 — During a decade spent as a professional musician, I discovered web development and then WordPress, and made a primary career switch.

My audience would be developers of any level who want to start contributing to core.

Make WordPress bloggene har i stor grad hjulpen til at man kan holde sig i loopet. Særligt core bloggen giver et godt indblik i, hvad der sker i core og hvad vi kan forvente.
