Honestly, I was floored when I was included on this list. While I’d like to think of myself as an active member of the WP Community, what I’ve done is small in comparison to many of the names on this list, both in name recognition and contributions.
WordPress Community Summit
2012 has been pretty great to me so far, especially when it comes to the WordPress site of my life:
- I joined the WordPress Theme Review Team in March,
- Released my first Theme to the repository in the same month,
- Had my first patch committed to Core in May, therefore
- Became Core Contributor to 3.4 in June and
- Made it on the Twenty Twelve core development team in July.
But all this was topped today, when I received an invitation to the WordPress Community Summit on Tybee Island, GA in October!

- Download Twenty Eleven Showcase Slider.
- Unzip the folder into the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

The leanest comments.php file ever
More to be seen as a proof of concept than the next step in Theme Development evolution, in version 1.7.0 The Bootstrap’s
comments.php file will contain not more than a single call to
<?php /** comments.php * * The template for displaying Comments. * * The area of the page that contains both current comments * and the comment form. The actual display of comments is * handled by callbacks which are located in the functions.php file. * * @author Konstantin Obenland * @package The Bootstrap * @since 1.0.0 - 05.02.2012 */ comment_form(); /* End of file comments.php */ /* Location: ./wp-content/themes/the-bootstrap/comments.php */
Many Theme authors will argue that it doesn’t make much sense to move the entire comment business out of
comments.php and they are probably right. But when I realized that it was possible to have the entire file consist of only one function call, I wanted to implement it and try it out.
Core Contributor to WordPress 3.4
With my first three contributions to WordPress core, I also made it on the Credits page for the new release, which is a huge honor for me:
