A personal reflection on 8 weeks of coordinating the release of WordPress 5.3

A disclaimer first: this is not to be considered a retrospective on my official role. This is all about feelings and emotions. If you are looking for one, it will be posted in the Core blog at some point šŸ™‚

In the past eight weeks I have been coordinating the release of WordPress 5.3, the next major version of the open source CMS and I am so happy with what is going on that I decided to write a post about it!

Traveling for business: tips and tricks

I am about to fall asleep for the third time since this morning, after coming back from Miami, where I spoke at the tenth WordCamp Miami (congratulations folks, you rock!). It seems only fitting to write today the second post about traveling for business.

Traveling for business: suitcase and apps edition

I have decided to try and write in English. I know, I know, I am Italian, my readers (hi!) are Italians and yet, English is the language that I use the most, professionally and personally.

I made very few New Year’s resolutions, one of them is writing more.
Will you stick with me? I promise I will write useful content šŸ™‚

The WordPress Community – Smashing Conf Jam Session

I managed to cross an item from my bucket list: “attend Smashing Conf”.

On February 8 and 9, I attended Smashing Conf in London, soaked in all the knowledge I could, fawned at Rachel Andrew, giggled at the stuff that Una and Martin showed on stage and had a jolly good time.

I also had the chance to give a lightning talk at the pre conferenceĀ jam session, the night before the event. Here is a transcript of my notes, I hope the talk will inspire you to join the WordPress Community, online and offline!

(The Rebirth of the Italian) WordPress Community

I had the pleasure of speaking at WordCamp Europe 2016, in Vienna. This is a transcript of my notes.

When I applied to speakĀ at WordCamp Europe 2016, I thought that what was going on in Italy was pretty special: after talking to people at WordCamps, getting more involved in the Community team and especially after reading the wonderful series about the European CommunitiesĀ written by Emanuel on WordCamp Europe website, I am fairly certain that the story I am about to tell will resonate with many of you. I’ll just useĀ Italy asĀ an example.
