A Happy New Year to you all!
It’s that time of year again for looking back to see how far we’ve come. 2017 was a rather productive year for me where I have tackled some big tasks.
Here are some of the highlights of my 2017.
Released PostTypes v2.0
This year I set about adding unit tests to PostTypes. This was an interesting endeavour and I learnt a lot in the process.
Adding unit tests to a project that works with WordPress can be a tricky task at best. I did a lot of research and documented my thoughts in an issue on Github. There I expressed the problems I was facing along with potential solutions.
In the end it took some time but it turned out to be rather painless, and in October I released PostTypes 2.0. Now I need to create better documentation for it.
Rebuilt Oh Thats Nice
I released Oh Thats Nice back in 2016. I built it on WordPress but soon came to realise that was a mistake. The process of adding a new site to the gallery was taking far too long and hosting was becoming an issue.
I’ll be working on this project more in the year to come.
Cleaned up hosting
I occasionally make websites for friends which I also host. The hosting I was using for several years had become slow, outdated and a complete mess.
The process took a lot longer than I’d like to admit but I finally finished migrating all sites to a new setup. Using Pixeno’s reseller hosting has cleaned everything up. Each site has it’s own cPanel making things much easier to manage and setup new sites.
If you’re looking for a new host Pixeno (affiliate link) is a great company offering developer friendly hosting with good support.
Looking forward to 2018
I’m stepping into 2018 with a lot of excitement. I’ve got some new projects lined up which I’m eager to get into and will be a lot of fun to build.
I’m planning on writing more for this blog giving insights into some of the things I have been working on. So keep coming back over the year to get a sneak peak at the projects I’ll be building.
