All change …

I’m coming up (at end of May) to a career hiatus after five years of running my own legal practice. I will continue pottering at being a lawyer (or something close to it) until another interesting full time opportunity rears its head.

The good news is that I imagine that this will take at least six months and during the meantime I intend to get a bunch of projects off the ground.

These include:

  • bringing PDO for WordPress and the sqlite driver up to scratch with version 3.2 WP
  • writing an open source full bookkeeping and accounts package for professional service providers requiring multi currency support (there are lots of webservices available but NONE have all the features that a simple business such as mine would need).
  • writing a management application for gite/chambres d’hotes businesses
  • adding a simplified accounts and invoicing module for the gite management software
    writing an art collection management application.

if anyone is interested in collaborating in any of the above, or has input into the requirements specification for any of them then leave a comment. I’ll be posting the req specs for each app in due course.

it will be so great if you PDO WordPress works with WP 3.2. Can’t wait to get it for my blogs.

Another thought: maybe you can make PDO WordPress a sourceforge/google code project so that people can contribute to the efforts. And if you become a big time lawyer, someone else can carry the flag and continue developing the project.

What do you think?

for pdo .. i git problem wirth backslahes ..
I think it’s that stripbacktick would bee better call on the query with palachodelr at hen end of the process

And i don’t understand why replaceVariablesWithPlaceHolders become with a stripslashes

@Bertrand:
Hi Bertrand

i have not looked at PDO For WordPress for more than a year. I have a career break coming up shortly and may take a proper look at updating the codebase then.

i do recall considering when to invoke the stripbackticks but don’t recall the reasoning. sorry not to be more helpful.

Well i’ll try to do the stuff myself
change place of stripbacticks and suppress stripslashes
I coming soon
