The biggest inducer of anxiety in my business is decisions with no clear answer. In these situations, data is the best anecdote.
the lesson I’ve learned about business, by thinking as a developer about Ingot, as a business.

The WordPress REST API’s inclusion in core “sometime in 2015,” something everyone is excited about, has until this week and everyone couldn’t wait. Now that’s not so certain. But it’s a feature we need in WordPress, and it’s ready. To waste this opportunity now would be a huge mistake.
Some thoughts on how I strive to write compelling stories about how my readers are going to learn new things about using WordPress to meet their goals.
It’s 2015 and I have every right to demand real-time visual feedback for any changes to the presentation layer of a web app, before I save them, and without reloading the page. For more and more of the WordPress admin the Customizer delivers.
