For those of you who didn’t hear the news, 8BIT is closing up shop. We are no longer working on any of our projects or themes. I will still be around in the Support Forums for 29 more days, so make sure you go and download the latest version of Standard 3.3.5 before we turn off access.
What’s next for me?
I will continue to work at John Deere. It’s an awesome place to work, but it doesn’t have the sweet video game mural as we did in our 8BIT office. I will continue to be in the WordPress community and play around with Bootstrap. I enjoy blogging too much to quit now!
I will also continue to use Standard as my theme of choice. I still believe in the product and think it’s the best WordPress theme out there. I personally hope that Standard will continue in some fashion, just not sure how that will all shake out.
I will most likely continue to create child themes for it as well. I will also be open to questions you may have about Standard, but not going to give free support. If you do need help customizing, updating, or anything else, please contact me.
I’m going to miss the team, but I’m glad to see what is in the future for each of us. Thank you guys for the opportunity and the friendships. It was real swell.
