I’m a Boston-based web developer, former accountant, and occassional audio engineer. Though I’ve done work with Drupal and Joomla in the past, I now work exclusively with WordPress. Through my former employer, Oomph, Inc., I was lucky enough to work on the WordPress.com VIP platform, which provided exposure to the unique complexities of scaling WordPress to support significant traffic volumes.
In late July 2012, I joined Automattic’s Team Custom, bringing new features to WordPress.com users who want to customize their blogs with more than just a great theme.
I also develop plugins for WordPress, which are released at no cost through the WordPress plugin repository. A few of my plugins can be found at ethitter.com/plugins/, with a complete list available at http://profiles.wordpress.org/users/ethitter/. Most of these plugins were created at the behest of former clients, who were generous enough to permit their release for the benefit of the WordPress community.
From time to time, I’ll post WordPress-related code snippets and tidbits of information in the blog section of this site, though I don’t have time to do so as much as I’d like. I also speak at a fair number of WordCamps, and do my best to post slides, videos, and other relevant information from those talks in the aforementioned blog.
