Last weekend was WordCamp 2011, Lots of things were said and done, there was an afterparty that not many talk about (and many suspect the organisers were still drunk the next day), and of course – there were talk from a lot of interesting people.
But of course, this isnt to write about those people, the events, or anything else, this is purely a post to post up a few things which I mentioned.
First part, My presentation: How to become a WordPress Surgeon: An introduction to WordPress Core Contributing. – in reality, it was decided 5 minutes before hand the content, so give me some slack :)

Now the links I promised:
- Search and Replace – An excellent plugin for replacing text throughout WordPress, good for updating old links from other domains
- Core Control – A Plugin of mine which allows you to see inside a bit of WordPress, The main use for this today is determining which HTTP Transport is in use, and the ability to disable those which are malfunctioning.
- Theres another plugin which is useful when changing permastructures to distinctivly different structs, in most cases the canonical redirect takes care of it, but it’s not 100% perfect, I cant find the plugin, but Advanced Permalinks looks like it’ll do the job, But might not be compatible with 3.0/3.1, and might be overkill really.. but search the Permalinks tag on the extend directory and see what you can find.
And links that are just awesome:
- How to DOS a Developer – How to help out reporting issues to developers
