This post is the second part of my journey to become a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. In this post, I’ll share with you my experience in the Trial, the most exciting journey of the entire application process.
Ever since I came across the Work with Us page on Automattic, I’ve always wondered what it’s like to work everywhere, including places like coworking spaces. Today, I decided to experience it to see if it’s suitable for me.
Yesterday I had a very interesting discussion with one of the volunteers at the WordPress.com support forum and an Automattic’s staff about a topic posted on the forum. And thanks to this topic, I learned about domain forward with masking.
Looking back in the month of September, I have a feeling that it’s a slow and unproductive month. However, my progress tracking notes on my journey to become a Happiness Engineer seems to say otherwise!
Ever since I started volunteering at the WordPress.com support forum, one of the most frequent replies from the volunteer members and the staff will be to clear up the confusions between WordPress.com vs WordPress.org.
In this post, I’ll try to explain the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org using an analogy. If you have another analogy to share or if you think that any of the examples given in this post is not appropriate, feel free to comment and let me know!
Note: The term website or blog or site might be used interchangeably in this article as they meant the same thing.
I have no name. I was born in a backyard of a house with 5 other siblings. 2 of them died not long after they came out from my mom’s womb, 3 of them were adopted when we were 4 weeks old. I was the only one left in the backyard with my mom.
