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.
A brilliant & persuasive way to present value. Currently adapting this to EDP.
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.
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.
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.
