Cleaning up Links in your WordPress Site After Switching Domains or Permalinks

I recently moved this content from Monday By Noon where it sat for over a decade to its new place here on this domain. I learned a lot about a lot during that time and as I iterated on the site I played around with permalinks a number of times. There was a time when […]

If you haven’t had a chance to watch this recent interview between Torque Magazine and Morten Rand-Hendriksen I highly encourage you to do so: Morten is one of the people I really look up to for his eloquence in being able to verbalize things in such a way that resonates really well with his listeners […]

Using Parcel to Bundle your Vue Powered WordPress Plugin

I’ve been working with Vue for the past little while and it has very much struck a chord with me and how I like to work.

My Move from MAMP Pro to Vagrant for WordPress Development

I recently upgraded to a new computer and in doing so shook up my entire development environment. My last was based on MAMP Pro for a number of reasons. Primarily: it just worked. I rarely had to bring up the GUI, everything was just ‘native’ and I went about my business building stuff for the […]
