I’m Going to be Working with WordPress for GSoC

Some of you may have seen my tweet yesterday. I’ve been accepted into the Google Summer of Code program by the WordPress project. You can read the announcement, with all 15 of the chosen applicants, on the WP development P2 blog.

Matt Harzewski, comment moderation improvements and associated dashboard improvements. Mentor: Austin Matzko (filosofo).

Wow. I’m still a little bit surprised, and excited. 79 submissions seemed like such a big number.

I may end up posting a little less over the summer as a result, as GSoC will cut into my time a bit. (I’m not stopping entirely, I promise. Just a post or two less each week.) I’ve been blogging almost daily here for four years, so I don’t think it’s too unreasonable to dial-back the frequency of my posting for two months. :)

    Hey Matt, that’s great news. Will be interesting to see what you bring to the table. The comment moderation has come on massively in the last couple of updates, but anything else that improves it would be fantastic.
