I have some great news I want to announce! As of today, Spiral Web Consulting is fully open for business.
For those of you who have worked with me, you know that I have been doing freelance development for over three years now. Spiral Web Consulting was made in an effort to consolidate the work that both Jesse Altman (my business partner) and myself have been doing over the years.
As you may have seen on Twitter, we have already taken on a few large-scale projects, such as Ryan Block’s gdgt live, and have been successful in them. We are always looking to take on more projects, so feel free to contact us.
I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting new, improved versions of both Podcasting and Google Analyticator. My goal of overhauling both plugins is an ambitious one, and I promise will be completely worth the wait. While neither update is ready yet, I’m happy to announce tracking the progress of both plugins will be easier than ever.
Starting today, there is now a Twitter account called SWC_Plugins. The latest development news (a.k.a. svn commit information for those of you in the know) will constantly be available there for your viewing. Work is occurring on both plugins almost daily at the moment, so feel free to start following that account for your latest development news.
For those of you looking for a status update, today I just finished converting Podcasting to an easier to manage, class-based plugin. This update was long over due on my end, and will make development much easier in the future. With the completion of the class conversion, comes a very important fix for those of you having issues adding new files. There is no ETA on the version at the moment, but I promise it’s not far away.
As for Google Analyticator, I’m very well aware that external links are not currently being tracked. This is very high on my list of things to fix. Again, no ETA, but sooner rather than later.
P.S. For the smart ones, yes, there is a big announcement coming for my plugins, as well as my freelance career in general. Stay tuned, this is going to be good!
Great news. I spent some time the past fews days updating my plugins, and now all supported plugins are WordPress 2.7 compatible. This means you can upgrade without worries later tonight or tomorrow and continue enjoying my plugins.
In fact, for those Podcasting users out there, you’ll be enjoying Podcasting even more. Over the past few months I have been slaving away adding more features to Podcasting. That release is now available. While 2.0 is still not out of beta, I feel confident enough with my code to call it the official version. Let me know what you think of the new version.
Wow, I have not updated cavemonkey50.com in forever. I feel bad for not updating, but unfortunately the past few months have brought many changes in my life.
In August I moved from Allentown, Pennsylvania to State College, Pennsylvania to finish my last two years of college at Penn State’s Main Campus. In addition to the move, the last few months I have been launching a new freelance company with a good friend of mine, Jesse Altman (more on that in the coming weeks). So, I have not exactly had the time I normally put into blogging.
