$this->is(‘how we do it’);

Hello. My name is Rocco Tripaldi and I work for Automattic helping to make Jetpack awesome. I launched this website in May, 2013 as a place to store my family recipes, and to showcase some of my favorite software projects that I’ve worked on.

In addition to cooking up food and computer code, I also enjoy:

  • my lovely wife is an actress and playwright
  •  I got a BA in Graphic Communications
  •  I’v been playing since 1992, and I need to do it more!
  • Disc Golf, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Cat Petting
 

BruteProtect + Jetpack

I'm thrilled to report that, at the end of August 2014, Automattic acquired BruteProtect, a WordPress plugin that I'd been working on for the past 2 years or so. As part of the aquisition, founder Sam Hotchkiss, and the rest of the team were welcomed into the company behind WordPress! We will join the Jetpack team to integrate our brute force protection and help out with some other big changes. I'm so excited.

Code

Jetpack

Jetpack is a WordPress plugin that supercharges your self-hosted website with the best features from WordPress.com. I started with this lovely team in August 2014 to help integrate some brute force protection and build some cool new features.

<span> paintings

These bizarre paintings are from the mind of Chris Sullivan, an artist who works in Portland, Maine. Blending HTML code and art was pretty time consuming for Chris. I made his life a bit easier by building an online tool that auto-generates the HTML.

BruteProtect

BruteProtect is a WordPress plugin that offers protection against brute force attacks. I signed on as a contributor to this plugin in May 2013. In the spring of 2014, we launched a premium version of the plugin, which can be found at my.bruteprotect.com. In August 2014, we were acquired by Automattic, the company behind WordPress.

Valuate

Valuate is an art project by Chris Sullivan, an artist who works in Portland, Maine. The project has an online presence, which allows the public at large to collaborate. We are currently looking for a gallery to show Valuate.
