My kids started taking Taekwondo (Kukkiwon – World Taekwondo Federation WTF) at Protec USA Tae Kwon Do in Cedar Hill / Duncanville, TX. They really enjoyed it and I thought it would be something to do together, so I started doing it with them.
I was surprised at how much of a workout it is. There are a lot of warmup exercises, including pushups, crunches, etc., as well as blocks and punches. The main goal at our studio is to learn the Poomsae, which are the Kukkiwon forms. I found the videos for each form on YouTube, so I’ll be creating posts here for me to learn and practice each one. I hope they help you, as well.
One of the challenges in using WordPress with an external hosting environment and multiple developers is the creation of a local development environment with version control that will work seamlessly. Fortunately, using a combination of DesktopServer from ServerPress, an industrial-strength WordPress host like WP Engine and Git, you can have multiple development environments up and running relatively quickly. In this tutorial, I will explain how to create and set up a local WordPress development environment on a Mac, using DesktopServer by ServerPress, using a WP Engine backup point and then set up Git for version control. If you don’t use WP Engine, this tutorial probably won’t be very helpful.
I highly recommend WP Engine for reliable, secure WordPress hosting. They provide excellent customer service, daily backups and an easy restore process, a staging environment, git for version control, and much more! I like them so much that I would recommend them to anyone (even if I wasn’t part of their affiliate program, which I joined after using their service).

If you’re managing a testing program on your website—and every site should be testing—implementing a tag management system can take it to the next level. Through the use of these techniques, you will be able to reduce costs, increase velocity, and drive more effective testing.
Lots of work goes into testing.

There are many many things that shape who we are, what matters to us (at a point in time) and what drives passion, focus and priority.
