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. ‚úĆÔłŹ
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!¬†‚̧ԳŹ

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.
