Don’t make enemies, invest in friendships, by @corymiller303

Enemies are trouble and tear you down. Friends support you and build you up. Building a friendship is not easy, especially when the potential friend could just as easily be your enemy. But it's a worthwhile endeavor and a lasting investment.

I summarize @ftrain's "What is code?" article, but really you shouldn't read my summary, because the original is too good.

"What is code?" Paul Ford answers the question, with a 38,000 word masterpiece in Bloomberg. This is the first article I'd tell an aspiring programmer to read, and the one that anyone working in technology should have in their permanent collection.

Quick tip: Disconnect Jetpack from the WordPress.com side

Before now, deleting Jetpack enabled sites from WordPress.com was pretty hard unless you were in the WordPress admin. Now you can finally do it from the WordPress.com side, which is nice when the site no longer exists.

New: OptinMonster goes SaaS in effort to cater for more hosting environments and non-WordPress platforms

OptinMonster has changed the very core of their product today, and it is now a standalone SaaS (software as a service) product, versus a plugin that runs on users' servers.
