September 23, 2017 — An update for WordPress, themes and plugins should fix things. Right. And it does. Sometimes, however, some new bugs crawl in despite the best efforts and thorough testing. The multitude of installations and different plugin setups makes it impossible to test any plugin in every situation that exists in the world. And sometimes an update produces an error unfortunately, and in some cases even a totally broken site.

I don’t think so. Maybe partially. But you can do a lot to prevent an update breaking your live site and putting you out of business.

December 11, 2015 — We want code that is easy to understand, re-usable, and flexible. But we are always up against deadlines, so we rush, and end up with code that is messy, buggy, hard to maintain, and makes us go slower even though we’re trying to go faster.
