About

My name is Ian Dunn and I created this blog to cover information related to my professional life as a web developer. It contains solutions to problems I’ve run into and may need again in the future, rants on web standards and best practices, and any other random thing I feel like sharing.

I live in Seattle and work on the Dot Org team at Automattic*, where I’m sponsored to contribute to WordPress full time. My primary focus is building tools to support the WordCamp program, but I also pitch in sometimes to help support the WordPress Meta EnvironmentWordPress.tv, and the network of WordPress.org sites.

I’m a big fan of web standards and the open source movement, and I have a perfectionist streak that lends itself towards obsessing over best practices. In addition to my work at Automattic, I also maintain a few open source WordPress plugins and some miscellaneous projects.

Before joining Automattic, I did a lot of client work as a developer, and also a decent amount of systems- and network administration.
