Over the pass five months I have got to know the WordPress community by starting with who ever I could get in contact with via twitter or blog comments and would stop to give a nod to my barking, rambling, noob, hateful complimentary about working with clients, Envato, designing, working with WordPress and the languages we use. Here is how I feel
I feel that the people in the WordPress Community are open-hearted, but not but not bleeding, some are snobbish, but all are willing to teach and educate to the point of obsession. Few are without a single tutorial on their blogs. They all intelligent, because guess what; the steps to even get to the five-minute install is not for dummies. They are community and family oriented but capitalist. Capitalist gaining work by adding to a free standard and encouraging others to do the same.
We have here a group of people who rarely venture into the office, go on semi-annual trips around the country and spend time with their families while making a living pulling thoughts out their heads (or asses)
So in this five month trip I’ve fell in love with a world-wide frat family of beer drinking, pot smoking, caffeine addicted, stay at home parents that watch pink animated ponies and brave honey badgers on the nature channel with their children.
Code is poetry, a way of life, and a respect for yourself. Code is first things first.
