Since I realize I never blogged about it, and in case there are 2 people who read my blog who never see me on twitter, I joined WebDevStudios last September. This job effectively pulled me out of freelancing full time, and I am putting all my working focus on my time with them. It’s been a very good thing for me and I’m quite happy.
For those who are already caught up with that news, late in April, I got a little bit of a promotion within the company. They decided that they wanted to get me more integrated and give me some more responsibility. With that, they decided to anoint me “Plugin Tzar”. What this means is that I am the main person in charge of and dealing with a handful of plugins the company has made over time. These duties include helping people in the support forums set up for each plugin, as well as taking notes about reported issues/bugs and later fixing these bugs for future releases. Not only that, I’ll also be the main person extending and adding new features and/or paid extensions to the plugins so that we can create our own little marketplace.
I’m excited about the opportunity and the chance to run with this. I have already begun working on at least one of the plugins, slated for the next update next week. I also have many ideas and work to do with the others, that I can’t wait to get started on. Hopefully I can help our plugins shine with current and future users, and make sure they’re getting top-notch support when necessary.
