To go along with the new month and the changing season and leaves, I'm changing my focus at Automattic for the fourth time. I started out in the social tools arena, then moved on to Jetpack, from Jetpack to support engineer support, and now I'll be going back to focus on the WordPress project itself! :)
It's been over three years since I've had time, beyond minor patches, to focus any great amount of time on the project. When I first started with WordPress, I dove into the Multi Site project (pre-3.0), then worked on building out a customized Multi Site environment for the university I worked for.
Now, I'll be working closely with a new team at Automattic and the WordPress community to develop feature plugins, fix bugs, and whatever else needs to get done in the WordPress 4.1 and 4.1.1 release cycle. I'm pretty excited to work with the community like this again.
