For years I’ve been using MAMP PRO. After blowing up my database recently, I decided to finally switch over to VVV. Luckily I got a fantastic introduction from Konstantin Obenland at the Contributor Day at the WordCamp Bangkok 2018.
In the previous month I’ve talked to countless people about WordPress. One question keeps coming back over and over again: How many plugins can I install without facing negative affects? There’s only one answer to that question: It depends on the plugins.
A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I ever thought about working as Happiness Engineer at Automattic. My immediate reply was “I would love to, but I’m not good enough yet.”. However, he convinced me to give it a try. Now, a few weeks later, I’ve successfully passed my first and second assignment as well as my first and second interview. And … drum roll … Automattic offered me a trial position as Happiness Engineer starting on July 3, 2017.
