Weekly Roundup – Guy R Cook 20130802

http://developer.wordpress.org/ Mullenweg announced the creation of a developer resource website. It’s not quite ready yet so if you go to the URL, it will redirect to the WordPress.org site.

Magazine Basic

Magazine Basic was a first free theme for WordPress. To date, over 430,000 people have downloaded it from WordPress.org and the response has been unbelievable. Finishing touches on version 3.0.2 were applied by the creator to take advantage of all the amazing new features in WordPress and to now make Magazine Basic fully responsive for all devices.

I sold that first website in August of 1995, and has continued my web solutions company offering design, development and deployment, usability or support services since. The previous work experience as the marketing director for an ISP, radio sales, television news announcer, have all have helped to build my corporation. 19 years plus online doesn't hurt a bit; to be a web developer.
