The author already included a good sample plugin and article but I wanted to see if I can write a more basic example. So, today, I will create a WordPress plugin that uses WP Background Process to queue and run PHP tasks in the background. Read more

I’m going to consider sample log file and explain a couple different things you can do with these tools. I am using these tools on OSX and these commands or one-line scripts will work with any Linux flavor. Read more
I have taken another look at my responsive D3 map and had some time today to fix a few issues and make some enhancements. Normally, I would have updated my last post with the changes, but I wanted to take some time to explain the individual upgrades. Previously, I really focused on creating a world map with D3 that can not only be responsive in terms of screen size but also make that responsiveness work with zoom and pan limits. I added country names and colors to the geo data and included a simple tooltip feature for each country. Now, I am expanding on that with many enhancements, cross-browser fixes, and more simplified code.
