Statamic Addon Development Course

I use Statamic to power this site. It is super powerful, flat-file CMS built on Laravel with a great community, great support and very accessible team members.

One of its great powers is that it is very extensible via Addons. I've written several free ones and one paid one.

In the Slack group I've both helped people write their own or done contract work to build what's needed.

There is a subset of people however, that would like to learn how to build addons themselves, but don't know how to start.

As I know how to build addons, and really enjoy coaching/teaching, I decided to create a series of courses to walk people through building the various different types of addons. My first, Addon Development 101 is in a couple of weeks.

I'm very excited to help people learn.

My First Commercial Statamic Addon

For a while now I’ve been very involved in in the Slack community for my favourite CMS, Statamic. I’ve actually gotten some income from it, building custom addons for various people & companies.

In the last few months, I had several people pay me to build a membership component to their sites and that got me thinking that there might be enough interest to actually commercialize it.

I’m very pleased to announce Admission, a way to have paid memberships for your Statamic site. It requires the latest version of Statamic (2.1.2) and a Stripe account hooked up to your bank account (to get your $$$) but other than that it’s pretty straight-forward.

I really enjoyed making it and hope that a few folks out there find it very useful.

Oregon Coast

The last time Christine & I had more than 2 days with no kids we went to Australia. This time we went a tad closer, to the Oregon Coast.

Christine found us a nice VRBO in Seaside and on Monday (July 27), we headed down.

First night was just a quiet walk around the town w/ dinner at Lilikoi's.

We did find a treasure that night, an amazing candy store, Schwietert's which started a great tradition...late night fudge.

Day one was strolling around Cannon Beach looking at the shops and going for a really nice walk along the beach to see Haystack Rock.

Wednesday we went on a hike that turned out to be quite challenging. It was very muddy and we had the wrong footwear & both of had foot/hip injuries that made it much harder than we had anticipated. Ended up taking us just over 4 hours to do the 8 1/4 mile hike.

Thursday was Astoria, which is the oldest settlement west of the Rockies, founded by Lewis & Clark. Met my long-time friend Clayton for lunch then off to the neat Columbia River Maritime Museum.

We only drove 1/2 back that day and stayed in Olympia and headed home the next day.

Oregon Coast is an extremely pretty trip and highly recommended.
