Budapest: Day 3

Day 3 in Budapest: LONG day with lots of walking and lots of pictures! Walked across Széchenyi Chain Bridge, took the funicular up to Castle Hill, walked around inside Mátyás-templom, took the Metro… and that was just the morning!

In the afternoon we had a walking tour called “Sleeping Beauty”, where we learned about Budapest’s abandoned buildings, gentrification, and the phenomenon of the “ruinpub”. Then we escaped from not one, but TWO mysterious rooms! (Well, half of our party only escaped from ONE room, but I won’t name names. My team escaped from both. ^_^)

Post By Email Proposal: v2

This is the updated version of the proposal, which incorporates feedback and suggestions from the project’s mentors and the WordPress community.

Background

There’s already a ticket in Trac with a patch to deprecate the core Post By Email functionality. We’ll build a standalone plugin that can serve as a drop-in replacement, allowing us to move forward with removing this functionality from core and adding more features for those who do use it. An overview of the way the core functionality currently works is outlined in the Codex.

Proposal: Post By Email plugin

Update: There is now a more recent version of this proposal.

I’m applying to work on WordPress as part of GNOME’s Outreach Program for Women (similar to the Google Summer of Code).  This is the current draft of my project proposal for a summer contribution to the WordPress project, and will continue to evolve as I incorporate the latest feedback and suggestions from the community.

Introduction

Hello!  Let me tell you a little about myself.

I’m a freelance web developer currently living in San Francisco.

I have a Masters in Computer Engineering and a Bachelors in CS, and I’ve been a working programmer for about eight years. I work with most of the popular web technologies and frameworks: WordPress, Rails, Django, JavaScript, etc.

Much of my client work involves building custom sites on top of the WordPress platform, so I’ve written a lot of WordPress code, including plugins, themes and taxonomies.

You can find out more about me on my website, codebykat.com.

Edited to add: Please do not use the comments section to report issues with my Post By Email plugin. Plugin issues should be reported on the support forum: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/post-by-email . Thanks!
