WordPress Weekly #194 Matt Mullenweg Interview

On this birthday celebration episode of WordPress Weekly, Jeff Chandler and I are joined by Automattic CEO, Matt Mullenweg. We covered a lot of ground with Mullenweg discussing the following topics:

  • Update on O2 the successor to the P2 theme
  • Memorable moments of the last 12 years
  • Update on the WordPress history book
  • Status of WordCamp USA
  • The WooThemes/WooCommerce acquisition
  • Hype surrounding the WP REST API
  • The WordPress Mobile App

We talked about a number of other topics as well. We apologize for the audio glitches in this episode as Mullenweg experienced bandwidth issues. He was in Ireland when we interviewed him. We also experienced some technical difficulties with Google Hangouts and I dropped out for about 5 minutes. The biggest interview of the year for me and it was nothing but glitches! Oh well. Good content anyway!

WordPress Weekly #192

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Jeff Chandler and I are joined by Dan Griffiths, founder of Section214. We spend the about half of the show learning about Griffiths’ background in technology at a young age.

Once out of the military, Griffiths experienced difficulties finding a job. He discovered Easy Digital Downloads and explains how working on a ticket and creating an API led to getting a job offer from Pippin Williamson. Since accepting the job offer, Griffiths has published 22 plugins to the WordPress plugin directory and has attended several WordCamps.

Later in the show, we discuss HostPress, an open-source, extensible server control panel built on top of WordPress. He describes his motivation behind the project and why he thinks webhosts need a better solution. Near the end of the interview, Griffiths shares his thoughts on the WP REST API that will eventually be added to WordPress and what it means for the project’s future.
