Tabby is an Academic Applications Developer at the University of California in Irvine. She has worked with WordPress since WordPress 2.0.5 was a shiny play-thing, developing both plugins and themes; Tabby is always chasing after the latest and greatest standards and best practices. And when she’s not doing that, she desperately trying to catch up on all the things she’s missed out on like “Books” and “TV” and “Friends”.
Owls, Dark Chocolate, Star Trek (But I’m only on TNG so don’t go spoiling me!), WordPress, Syfmony2. And things.
WordPress Origin Story
One day, after fighting dragons (that’s another story), I got a phone call from a friend who wanted a new website. She wanted it to be “dynamic” and “fun” and “like a community”. At first, I thought about using PostNuke, which is what I was most familiar with having written a thesis paper after using it. Then I realized that THAT was just going to invite more dragons into the area, so I did some ‘search and read so much awesomeness about the famous five-minute install for WordPress that I immediately decided that it would be the tool of choice. So, I whipped up her “fun” and “dynamic” site and taught her how to make it “like a community” and the rest, my friends, is “history”. And blood, sweat and tears. “AMIRIGHT?”
