Following on the same theme as Luc, I'm Dave Metzener. I've been running
WP since a little after the beginning of the year. Started with 1.2.2,
then after talking to a few people running the nightly builds of 1.5, I
Prior to WP, I ran, ExpressionEngine, MoveableType, phpBB, pMachine,
Greymatter, as well as hand updating the site. I currently run the
2-21-2005 nightly build at http://www.daveschalkboard.com. I currently
have EE and MT installed on a domain I used to use.
Like Luc, I have rarely seen any problems with WP while running beta's.
I suppose that's a testament of how well the folks writing the code do
I'll do my best to help with the development effort. I'm a Java
programmer by profession, however, I love programming in general and
enjoy learning new languages. I have been "testing the waters" of PHP
these last few weeks and find it refreshing.
I would like to see the Documentation on the WordPress Codex be improved
greatly. I always find myself wandering all over that site only to not
find what I am looking for, or finding a small snippit of what I need
someplace somewhat related. Latest example was the do_action() method. I
wasn't aware that it had to go into some of the theme files. I had a
plugin that was suppoed to be clearing out data in the DB when the
footer was displayed, yet because the theme I was using didn't use
do_action(), it wasn't executing. I found out about do_action() by
looking at the default theme. Didn't find the do_action() method at all
in the Template Tags page where I feel it should go.
