It was inevitable, I suppose, that I would, one day, have to start applying my experience to the Day Job instead of just my hours. Instead of just being the go-to-guy for programming, I’d have to take over a more responsible role and help other people to learn the craft…
Through my participation of the regular and sociable “WordPress Meetup” in Bern, I was one of the volunteers who helped organize the WordCamp conference in Switzerland's capital last weekend.
As my working career moves towards being involved with WordPress 100% of the time in future, I’ve started to gradually invest a little more of my time and effort into the WordPress community. My aim is to work with friends and colleagues to coordinate our efforts in Switzerland into…
After six years with my current employer, the time has come to move into a role which better suits my abilities and which will provide me with new challenges. I'm really excited that I've been asked to join WordPress agency Cubetech in Bern as Head of Development.

In 2016, 27% of all of the websites on the internet were powered by WordPress. That's 8 times more than Joomla, 12 times more than Drupal, and 70 times more than TYPO3.

Publishing photos to WordPress directly via FTP using Adobe Lightroom.
I’m in the closing stages of development for a new WordPress site for a client. (A private one, so I can’t go into details.) As the development phase has progressed, the management of the required plugins in the Multisite installation has become ever more complex. Some sites are running an older Theme, which…
