Hey there, here we are with another RunDown, this is a bi-weekly edition as I am still travelling through Montenegro after an amazing WordCamp EU in Belgrade.
So, big news from RunCloud this past week or so, and one we know a lot of you have been waiting a long time for… RunCloud Teams!!! Click the link for Liew’s article below for the all the details. On another note, and not entirely unrelated, we have updated our pricing policy, all current users will not be affected and benefit from being grandfathered on their old plans forever, but going forward we have increased the pro plan cost, and introduced an entirely new Business tier that includes the new Teams feature.
So, in the news recently… Matt Mullenweg was at WordCamp and gave a summer update filling everyone in on Gutenberg progress and the 5.0 roadmap, we have an article looking at the SEO factors that you need to focus on to boost conversions on your eCommerce site, there is an introduction to a PHP console companion app for development on the Windows platform, the Drupal blog reaches out for community members to vote for the Drupal Associations board, the Kinsta blog shows us how to deal with those annoying mixed content warnings, Morten Rand-Hendricksen has released a WordPress theme and build process featuring optimized code and best practices, and finally, PHP 7.3 will feature better JSON error handling and allow for trailing commas in function callbacks.
In this week’s talks and tutorials, we have two excellent articles on Continuous Delivery. Carl Alexander has a lengthy article detailing his CircleCI Continual Deployment process he uses to deploy his new plugin to the WordPress repository, while Margaret Staples explores a similar process using Jenkins. Delicious Brains have released their 2018 update to their evergreen WordPress Self Hosting guide, we explore the Laravel Eloquent Status package, there is an invaluable PHP Cheat Sheet, an Envato tut on authentication using AuthO with PHP, a SitePoint article on Web Server optimizations for both Nginx and Apache, and another SitePoint tutorial on building an image gallery blog in Symfony, before we finish up with Andy Carter showing us the dangers of using $$Variable Variables in PHP.
That is all for now, see you all sometime next week (ish) from my next stop in Greece!
