A boy on a street in front of many people walking

I love travelling, who does not? But, I love even more to travel and attend an event where I go. In the last two years I travelled a lot around the world, from America to various countries in Europe, attending WordCamps and other events, and I learned many things about them and how to get the best out of them.

I’m sure that at least once you had to search something in the code, even if you are not a developer. Maybe a support technician told you that you can customize your site using WordPress actions, or you simply need to know the name of a function.

.blog domains logo

You may have noticed that from yesterday the URL of this site became nicola.blog! Do you like it?
This will be the new home of my blog, and of my other non-WP related blog which you can find it at wiht.nicola.blog.

.blog domains are some brand new domains that are actually still not available for everyone. I’ve got it because I joined the founders program, and I’m now the proud owner of one of the first blogs in the world with a .blog domain!

You can find more info about .blog domains here: https://get.blog/.

This article is a bit different from my usual articles, but I really wanted to write about my experience with Windows IoT.
First, you need to know why and how I wanted to use it though.

I’m working on a personal project and that project involves DeepBot, a Twitch streamer assistant. It’s a very cool bot for Twitch that has many features, like chat commands, audio commands, song requests, subscribers management, loyalty points system, internal API, and many more.

I wanted to integrate DeepBot with a WordPress website using WooCommerce to manage subscribers automatically from the site to the rest of the programs involved in the system.

It has one “feature” that I really hate though…
