My Web Developer Search History Last Week

I loved learning about Sophie Koonin’s recent blog post with a week of her search queries for work. The point of sharing is to show how actively web developers need to find resources to learn new things and remind themselves of things they know of but haven’t committed to memory.

It seems like a fun little exercise, and I was busy working on an interesting project last week, so here’s my work-focused search history.

Monday, September 30

  • filter content_width
  • filter content_width wordpress – Even I don’t capitalize the P correctly when doing a search!
  • do_shortcode text widget
  • 288/930 – Did you know Google does math? I use this feature all the time.
  • 326*.31
  • wordpress textwidget shortcode
  • add_filter(‘widget_text’,’do_shortcode’); – These last three shortcode queries were me barking up the completely wrong tree to solve a problem.
