I joined Automattic in 2005. I have led and contributed to development of many core features including rich editing, widgets, attachments, rewrite, wpdb. Plugins I maintain include Stats, HyperDB, and Batcache. On WordPress.com, I am responsible for the firehoses and the instant messaging service im.wordpress.com which delivers subscription notifications in real time.

I live on three acres of Texas hill country land with my wife, our daughter, and our pets.

comment Create cron job without a plugin?
Yes, especially the example that uses register_activation_hook and register_deactivation_hook. This ensures you only schedule one recurring job.
