Alex King who’s been a fantastic member of the WordPress community since the creation of the project has published what I consider a fascinating post on his blog regarding his open-source motivations. The post contains his answers to questions provided by David Hobson who is currently performing research into the business/financial models as well as the motivations for open-source projects. There are a number of things that come up during the article that are worthy of discussion. I used to get about $100-200/month in the way of donations through my website. Unfortunately due to changes in the way plugins are presented on WordPress.org that has dried up to about $5/month. While that quote may look like Alex King is looking to rake in some money via donations, the truth is, the Plugin pages have been redesigned and the donation link is now housed within the FYI box with a tiny […]

A few days ago, Matt Mullenweg posed a question on the WordPress Hackers Mailing list regarding a new developer portal. If there were to be a developer portal for WordPress, someplace where if you’re first getting started with hacking on WP, building plugins, creating themes, you could go and it’d have all the best resources in one place, what resources do you think would be important to have there? I encourage you to read the thread through the mailing list archive and voice your thoughts, ideas or suggestions. Alternatively, you can leave a comment on this post since I know Matt routinely checks out the feedback.

Jane Wells recently put the call out to the WordPress Professionals mailing list asking for recommendations for Women WordPress developers. That is, those who develop plugins or patches for WordPress, not bloggers. Personally, when I think of women involved with WordPress, I think of Lorelle VanFossen, Lisa Sabin Wilson, and a few others. Other than Lisa who develops themes, I can’t think of any women off the top of my head that contributes routinely to the development of WordPress or plugins. If you are a female WordPress developer and you live on the West Coast, preferably around San Francisco, CA get in contact with Jane Wells as soon as possible. You may end up with the opportunity to present at WordCamp San Francisco.
