Free Introduction to Web Development Workshop

Brian Holt and the Frontend Masters team are putting on a free workshop today and tomorrow that is live-streamed for anyone that’s interested. This is super cool because, despite the fact that there is a mountain of articles about web development out there, there are only few that start with the basics in a manner that’s easy for beginners to follow. I’ve been a fan of Brian’s work for ages now, which is part of the reason why I advocated for him to join my team, and now I have the honor of working with him. I find his style of teaching really calming, which is encouraging when the subject forays into complex concepts. The livestream is free today (5/15) and tomorrow (5/16), but will also be available afterwards if you happen to miss it.

Updated Class: How to Use WooCommerce

WooCommerce is probably your best choice for eCommerce in WordPress. WooCommerce is hugely popular and now powers over 40% of all online stores. It is so commonly used that WooCommerce was purchased by Automattic and Matt Mullenweg back in 2015. This might be controversial to say, but it is close to being the “official” WordPress eCommerce plugin. In this week’s video release, Rod Martin updates our WooCommerce class. This class is now over 30 videos long and covers every aspect of getting started with WooCommerce. The lessons are based on the WooCommerce Explained book. Join OSTraining today and you’ll get access to both the books and videos. [[ This is a content summary only.

The Ultimate Copywriting Tool: The Wheel of Copy

Copywriting is an essential skill for anyone with an online presence these days. Ironically for some, writing one clear sentence that gets their message “just right” can be as difficult as writing a book. Successful copy combines a variety of information and emotions in a way that inspires action. Today I want to share a Read more Source: https://adespresso.com/feed/

Ask A Manager

Last summer, my little corner of the Internet blew up with a post on Ask A Manager, a workplace advice column by Alison Green. The letter writer said that 10 years ago, he’d ghosted on his girlfriend of three years. While she was visiting her family, he moved out—not just of the home they shared together, but of the entire country—without so much as a Post-It note. And then, as karma would have it, he learned that his ex-girlfriend was about to become his new boss. Oof. Alison responded with her trademark thoughtfulness and honesty:I don’t know that you can salvage this! It’s not reasonable to ask Sylvia to manage someone who she has this history with. You can try and see what her take on it is, but I’d be prepared to have to move on, whatever that might look like for you. I get that it’s going to be…

Promoting the Drupal community from within the Drupal software

Jacob Rockowitz recently posted a blog post with ideas about how we can make Drupal more welcoming. What I found most interesting about Jacob’s blog post is that he makes the point that every WordPress site (not WordPress.org) has an ‘About WordPress’ section in the administration backend that shows both WordPress’ values and contributor credits. This could be an interesting approach for Drupal and is an idea worth exploring. Today, Drupal’s values and principles and Drupal’s contribution credits live on Drupal.org, but not in the Drupal software itself. When done well, it’s probably one of the most impactful ways to educate people and organizations that are new to Drupal about our community and open source. And by having credits in the software, we’d inspire more people and organizations to contribute back. It’s an interesting idea. Source: Dries Buytaert www.buytaert.net

Introducing Boosts: an all-new way to show your support in Basecamp

We gave up on Likes and invented a totally new form of tiny communication.If there’s one thing you can’t avoid on the Internet, it’s Likes. They’re in nearly every software platform where people post photos or write text messages.Sometimes Likes are called Faves, Hearts, Reactions, Claps, or something else, but the basic idea is the same: they’re a small, quick way to express your feelings about something, usually accompanied by a count of other people who had that same feeling.Until today, we had exactly this sort of feature in Basecamp 3. We called it Applause. If you liked a post, you’d clap for it. Everyone who clapped was shown in a row.Basecamp’s applause feature.This was fine, of course—it worked just like all the other Likes.But a couple months ago, we started thinking more deeply about this pattern, and we noticed it has a lot of insidious problems.Likes are vague, especially in a professional setting.…

Defining Drupal's values and principles

Since its founding, Drupal has grown a great deal, and today there are thousands of contributors and organizations that make up our community. Over the course of seventeen years, we have spent a great amount of time and effort scaling our community. As a result, Drupal has evolved into one of the largest open source projects in the world. Today, the Drupal project serves as a role model to many other open source projects; from our governance and funding models, to how we work together globally with thousands of contributors, to our 3,000+ person conferences. However, the work required to scale our community is a continuous process. Prompted by feedback from the Drupal community, scaling Drupal will be a key focus for me throughout 2018. I have heard a lot of great ideas about how we can scale our community, in addition to improving how we all work together. Today,…

35 Ways to Find New Copywriting Clients

Looking for clients is a big part of your job. (At least initially; eventually referrals will make everything much easier.) Many new copywriters can fall into a little bit of a client-search trap, though: They pick one method of searching and stick with it. If that method works consistently for you, then great. But it’s much more likely that that method will be spotty and, if you’re not seeing the results you want, it’s also likely you’ll get frustrated and disappointed. So let’s head off any frustration and disappointment at the pass. Today, I’m giving you 37 different ways you can try to find clients. Some will be easy to do and some will take longer than others. And some will work like gangbusters for you, and some won’t—but you can’t know until you try. The key here is to spread your wings a bit and try a few new…

Die, Sugar.

One of my biggest weaknesses is a love of sugar. I really like sweet things. But, I also know that it’s one of the things that I simply do not need in my life… or, at least, as much as I’d like to consume. Even natural sugars from fruit can be overdone; quite easily in fact. So, I’ve been working hard over the last few years to remove most sugar(s) from my diet. I have more energy and I am less prone to migraines. But, I’ve been a bit lax in the last few months (and lazy) with my consumption of sugar and I need to get things back on track. And, I’m starting today. I’m killing sugar from my diet. I don’t need it and the effects of not having it far outweigh the benefits. I’m publicly blogging this so that if I ever meet you out IRL or have…
