Shipping code for fun & profit (26 things I learned by shipping code)

This talk runs through my personal history of contributing to WordPress and Open Source in general. I’ll go through the most useful lessons I’ve learned – both people issues, and technical. Aiming to inspire and encourage new contributors to share, and ship code, and to provide a list of mistakes to avoid, and a set of fantastic resources to help people contribute great, solid, secure code.

The talk is aimed at theme/plugin developers – who will get the most out of the talk, but anyone who wants to “get involved” with Open Source or enjoys other people’s mistakes will also benefit.
