    Congrats Justin. Thanks for all the years of hard work, it’s been a pleasure working with first Theme Hybrid and later Hybrid Core. These tools have allowed me to create a viable business for myself and my family.

    Looking forward to the next 5.

    Happy Birthday to Theme Hybrid, and congratulations, Justin!

    Can we have the pleasure of your presence in Birmingham again this year, Justin? WC Birmingham is just a few weeks away! http://wpyall.com Hope you can come again, and tell me about some of those ideas 🙂

      I’d like to go. Right now, I just need someone to carpool with. If you know anyone who’s coming from the Greenville (where I live) or Montgomery area and doesn’t mind me tagging along, it’d be great. I’ll even split the gas cost.

    Congrats and thanks a lot 😉

    Congratulations to your “real job” 🙂

    And good luck with your homestead, I am sure you will cultivate it as good as you have managed with ThemeHybrid.

    We raise our glasses to another five years! Kudos Justin. Thank you for all you do. And thank you to everyone who is a part of this community. I’d be lost without all your help.

    Damn. Has it been that long? 45% renewal rate. Wow! What the hell have I been doing? I gotta catch up to you soon haha. Congrats.

    You’re similar to one of my cousins. He has a one track mind and you seem to operate the same way. While other companies experimented with different marketing and business models, you stuck with one direction for 5 years and backed it up with quality. That’s impressive.

    • Justin Tadlock

      Renewals are big for Theme Hybrid. The site would be closed down by now if not for repeat business.

      Hey, I don’t want to mess too much with the formula though. I’m not a business guru, so I’m sticking with what’s been working for now.

      I think Justin can read the future…
      like a sorcerer.

      his prediction, is amazing. i always try to question his code and or decision for something, but in the end..

      “oh, that’s why he did that… now i understand the reason..”

      just like when you play chess with a “master”, you’ll think one or two step ahead, but the “master” already have 10+ step ahead in his head, sometimes, even know how the game will end (before even starting the game).

      • Justin Tadlock

        After doing support for so long, you start to recognize some of the pitfalls that you’ll encounter in the code. So, that gives you a couple of steps right off the bat.

        But, it’s always about iteration. You create something that’s awesome. Then, you learn it’s can be more awesome after using it for a bit.

    Congrats on 5 years! Keep up the great work and look to see what another 5 years brings forth!

    Hybrid Core 1.6 is out! Any points on what’s new? 🙂

    • Justin Tadlock

      I’m working on an announcement post right now, which should be published tonight. There’s a few details in a sticky post at the top of the support forums right now though.

    Happy Birthday! Hybrid Core and Justin (I know its too late but I stumbled upon this today :().

    I must say a fine decision you made five years ago, if you would not have done this, I might have been spending my hundreds of hours forking my own framework (I am glad I am not 😉 doing it).

    So I am really glad you did indeed took a step in right direction (at least in my opinion).

    Thanks a bunch :D.

    Thanks

    A bit late to this but thanks for all the hard work Justin. I very much admire your BS free work ethic and this is definitely a contributing factor to me signing up each year. And of course the fact that the framework is rock solid 🙂
