AMA With Rachel Carden This Wednesday (11th Nov)Nov. 9, 2015
I hope your weeks started well, just to give you all a heads up, our next ama will take place this Wednesday with special guest, Rachel Carden.
Rachel is a web developer & designer within the student affairs division at the University of Alabama. She obviously has experiences managing large web projects at universities, the challenges that come with that and with managing a large multi-site network!
She's currently got 4 plugins in the WordPress plugin repo, including "CPT-onomies", wordpress.org/plugins/cpt-onomies/ which lets you use your custom post types as taxonomies.
And a brand new plugin "Rock The Slackbot" wordpress.org/plugins/rock-the-slackbot/ which helps you stay on top of your WordPress website, by sending notifications of changes, straight to you and your team inside your Slack account. Changes such as a posts being published, updated, deleted, or when new media is added/deleted, or when a plugin/theme is updated, etc, all within your slack account.
She's also the organizer behind a number of meetups and conferences, such as HighEdWeb Alabama, Alabama WebTide, Tuscaloosa Web Pros - www.meetup.com/Tuscaloosa-Web-Professionals/.
And a brand new conference, WPCampus, which is "a community and conference focused on using WordPress in the world of higher education" - wpcampus.org/ which you can still get involved in, be it as a planner, speaker, sponsor or attendee.
