WordCamp Philly this past weekend was a blast, and I met a lot of great people. The vibrancy of the WordPress community here in Philly is impressive. Giving my Clean code for WordPress presentation was also a lot of fun. I got vigorous agreement from the audience that more evangelism for clean code in WordPress plugins is definitely needed. Video of my presentation will be online at in a few weeks.

The youngest attendee was 10 years old. He came to the developers’ day on Sunday too. The organizers were planning to guide him through fixing a bug in WordPress core, so he could be the youngest contributor to WordPress and get his name on the official credits. I spent the developers’ day getting started on adding Flickr support to Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "shashin-wordpress-plugin". I’m not a Flickr user, but I was sitting next to Captin Shmit, who is, and he had a lot of useful suggestions. Thanks Captin! (yes that’s how he spells it).

Below are the slides from my presentation (if you click the link, it will take you to, where you can also see my notes for the slides).
