After being in the planning stage for a few months, the first ever WP on Tour was a huge success. The goal of WP on Tour was to bring WordPress fans from around the world for a solid week of fun and co-working, and this first WP on Tour brought ten WordPress fans and developers to Sitges, Spain. The crew worked together on a few client and personal projects, and some of the biggest releases of the week were major updates to WP Stripe and YouTube DJ. As for the fun aspect, they were kind enough to snap several photos throughout the week. Does this look like fun to you? If so, you might want to host a WP on Tour event in your home town.

WPCandy Quarterly, a WordPress related quarterly print magazine from the folks at WPCandy, is just about to be mailed out to the lucky readers who either pre-ordered or subscribed. To my knowledge, or at least about half an hour of searching, this may very well be the first ever printed WordPress magazine publication. The first issue will feature articles from 11 well-known contributors, and due to demand from the pre-orders, 2,000 copies are making their way through the printers as you read this. A lot of thought went into the design of this magazine, and you can see a video blazing through the various drafts below. It’s not too late to reserve your copy, so if you want to be a part of this historical launch, you should place your order soon before they’re shipped.
