Over my past few years at Automattic, I’ve worked on a bunch of different teams and projects – VideoPress, the WordPress iOS app, various Social projects, and most recently, o2. I even took a few months to work on WordPress core, helping build the auto-update functionality that we now see rolling out security updates within hours of their release.
The few months I spent working on WordPress core made me realise something – there’s a lot more I have to contribute. So, with the WordPress 4.0 RC out the door, I’m super excited to be moving to my next project – working on WordPress core full time!
Automattic naturally puts a lot of people-hours into WordPress, with over 30 of us contributing to WordPress 3.9. I’m looking forward to being a bigger part of that, and giving more back to WordPress community!
Post titles like this scare me! 😮
It’s almost like that was the intention. 😀
First: This is awesome!! 😀
Second: I echo Alex’s comments 😛
Title scare: it didn’t even cross my mind. There’s just no way. Like, none. 🙂
Gary, you have given a lot to the community for sure. Appreciate what you have done and wish you well on the next adventure. Looking to do my part too. Big Shoes to fill LOL
Great news. Looking forward to seeing what you’ve got in store for us!
