Standard 3.2 is just around the corner!
For those of you who don’t know, I spend half my time working with my team at 8BIT working hard on both analog and digital products for bloggers.
Though I’ve discussed it in detail before, simply put: Standard is the core passion of the team and we’re committed to making it best theme for bloggers that we possibly can.
My team and 8BIT and I are currently running a Standard Theme discount from Black Friday thru Cyber Monday and here are the details:
With the recent launch of Standard 3, John – responsible for business development at 8BIT and a professional blogger – is going to be hosting a meetup later this month during which he’ll be providing some practical advice for aspiring and experienced bloggers for migrating to Standard 3.
This will be a great opportunity for anyone that’s looking to get started with blogging, update an existing installation of Standard, or looking to migrate over to Standard to have their questions asked.
Here’s what we have planned:
Since being self-employed, I’ve divided my time between building applications for others and as working as a developer for 8BIT. Over the past couple of years, we’ve released a handful of WordPress Themes, but roughly a year ago began to narrowly focus our efforts on our flagship product: Standard.
Yesterday, the team launched Standard 3.0 For WordPress – a product that has been approximately nine months in development. As far as my professional career is concerned, I’m extraordinarily proud of what we’ve accomplished.
This week, my startup – 8BIT – will be releasing the third version of our flagship product, Standard For WordPress.org.
In fact, I’ve been running this site on the previews that we’ve been releasing in order to be actively kicking the tires throughout development (John has shared his thoughts on dogfooding, too).
Over the course of the time that we’ve been building Standard For WordPress.org, the team has undergone a number of internal changes to help us better manage our project, codebase, deadlines, testing procedures, etc all of which I’ll likely discuss in a future post.
Additionally, we’ve partnered with Automattic as well as a few other notable guys in the WordPress community to make sure this release is as solid as possible. Continue reading
Yesterday, 8BIT dropped the first preview of Standard 3.0.
For those of you that have been reading this site via web browser (rather than RSS) for sometime, you’ve probably seen the design under going changes for the past few weeks as I’ve been using this as a sandbox for some of the features.
The preview is available for Support Licesees, but I’m excited about this version of the product for a number of reasons.
