Three weeks later

On April 20th, 2016 I led the kick-off meeting for the 4.6 release cycle. It was a great start. With a lot of Emojis.

Now, three weeks later, I’m still here and couldn’t be happier. (Although there are still 13 weeks until the target date for the release of WordPress 4.6. 🙈)

I’m proud to have Garth Mortensen as my Release Deputy who supports me in managing a release to make WordPress great again. ✌️
I’m also super happy about the fact that we’ve already managed to complete some of my personal goals for 4.6:

These are just a few highlights. For more you should definitely watch out for the Week in Core posts. 📝

If you want to be part of 4.6 then please take a look at the current tickets, join one of the meetings or ping me @ocean90 on Slack. 👋

I’m looking forward to seeing what the upcoming weeks bring!

 

(Yes, Inpsyde is hiring!)

Last but not least I’d like to thank Inpsyde for sponsoring me to work full-time as a Release Lead for WordPress 4.6.

Inpsyde is Germany’s biggest WordPress agency with a passion for open source development where I’m working as a freelancer for the last three years. Thank you! ❤️

WordPress 4.6 Release Lead

Nacin asked me the other day if I want to be a next victim lead of a WordPress release. I said yes and here we are.
