Despite not hitting his funding goal of $60k, Topher DeRosia took the feedback and support he received and moved forward with the HeroPress project. HeroPress now focuses on delivering information through text and images instead of video which significantly decreases costs. It also provides more translation opportunities as it’s easier to translate text versus video.
Although the project has new life, its mission remains the same: To develop the WordPress heroes of the world by sharing the accumulated wisdom of the community.
HeroPress has taken its first step in accomplishing this mission by publishing an essay by Andrey “Rarst” Savchenko entitled, “Finding Your Place”. The essay describes Savchenko’s journey in finding his place within the WordPress community.
It’s an inspiring read filled with peaks, valleys, and sound advice. If the first essay is any indication of what to expect out of HeroPress, I think the WordPress community is in for a treat. I for one can’t wait to read the next one.
