Notes from the SIGGRAPH Floor: Oculus Rift Virtual Reality

I’m on the show floor this week at SIGGRAPH, and I’m seeing some really exciting technology.

SIGGRAPH is the annual computer graphics and animation conference, taking place this year in Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s really a playground for animators, digital artists, interactive experience designers, motion graphics designers, and video producers—and I want to share with you what I’m seeing here.

WordPress 3.6: What's New, and Why it Matters

A few months behind schedule, version 3.6 of WordPress is out and ready for you to make the most of. The scope of changes in this release are relatively minor, but the updates are important and will help in your day-to-day work with WordPress. Here’s what’s new and why it matters to you.

Twenty Thirteen: The new theme standard

Since 2010, a new default theme has been released every year, and this year is no different. With 3.6 comes Twenty Thirteen. While the previous three themes—Twenty Ten, Twenty Eleven, and Twenty Twelve—got progressively simpler, Twenty Thirteen goes in a new design direction. It’s aggressively blog-centric with a heavy focus on Post Formats, and it’s a great example of the popular flat design trend currently sweeping the web.

The Twenty Thirteen WordPress default theme

Post Formats are a new feature in WordPress 3.6 that lets you choose unique layout and design templates for specific types of blog posts, such as images, videos, quotes, and regular articles, among others. The Twenty Thirteen theme supports Post Formats by providing a bold, unique visual style for each post so your site visitors can differentiate between the content in each one. In the image above you see the Video, Quote, Status, and Chat post formats on the front page. The Standard post format has a white background. The post format styling is also carried over into the post editor so as you change your post format you’ll see the styling change as you work, and the post formats are now identified using icons throughout the dashboard.

We've Published Our 2,000th Course!

lynda.com releases our 2000th course

With a variety of courses published each week at lynda.com, it’s easy to get distracted. So we’re pleased to take a moment to glance up from our busy release schedule to celebrate a significant milestone: lynda.com has just published its 2,000th course.

To put this in perspective, in April 2011 lynda.com featured 1,000 courses, which means we’ve now doubled our library in just over two years. From the initial concepts of a course, to screenwriting, to the production, camerawork, and editing of each individual video, 2,000 courses adds up to years of production time: no small feat.
