I am a retired Microsoft Excel VBA spreadsheet developer. As a pastime, I have been studying WordPress, PHP and MySQL. As exercises I have been writing WordPress plugins. My current project is a plugin for dynamically generated image galleries based on the “nggtags” shortcode of the original NextGEN Gallery.
I am a retired Microsoft Excel VBA spreadsheet developer. So, I am pretty much from the old school – pre Internet – of computer programming. I still think Microsoft Excel is one the best software development system ever made. However, I wanted to try something new. So, I was looking for an Internet technology to play around with. Since, WordPress is by far the dominant technology used on the server and is free it seem like the logical choice.
