Projects I have contributed to
I have been a WordPress Core Contributor since version 4.3 which was released in August 2015. I’m currently a component maintainer of the Multisite component and the REST API component, but regularly work in other areas as well. With WordPress version 4.6 I became one of the “Recent Rockstar” developers for the first time, and since November 2016 I have been a Core Committer.
Over the course of time I have opened 170 tickets, received 148 props and made 113 commits. Working on WordPress Core and other open-source projects is a high priority for me, so I ensure I have work time available to dedicate to it.
Before: Freelancer & Yoast
Before I joined Google, I was a freelancer working part-time for Yoast, who I have always admired and regarded as one of the very top companies in the WordPress space. They have an agenda that I can align with, a crazy-successful product, solid developers who are constantly improving… – I’m grateful to have been part of this wonderful team.
Not to forget, Yoast also give back to open-source a ton, they are the company that sponsored most WordPress core committers in recent years. As such, they enabled me as well to spend a significant amount of my time contributing to WordPress core.
Object cache implementation for WordPress that acts as an adapter for PSR-6 and PSR-16 caching libraries.
An OOP library to register admin pages in a sane way. Focused on WordPress, but easily reusable in any other environment.
