It’s not news to anyone that reads my personal blog that I run Post Status, a “WordPress news” website. It’s essentially your typical trade news publication. It’s my baby though.

I enjoyed being on the most recent Week in WordPress podcast with Jeff Chandler (of WP Tavern) and hosts Scott Sousa and Matt Medeiros.
We talked about WordPress News, considering Jeff runs WP Tavern and I run Post Status. We also talked about Automattic’s value, respecting one another within the WordPress community, and other issues going on in WordPress-land.
Check out all of the show notes on Matt’s website, Slocum Studio.
This morning, I had the honor to talk with Pippin Williamson about WordPress plugins, code, and the WordPress plugin ecosystem for WordSesh, an online WordPress conference. We had a great chat, and Pippin brought a ton of knowledge from his perspective as a professional WordPress plugin developer. I brought the perspective of a client centric developer that uses a lot of plugins.
We talked about extensibility, structure, best practices, updates, support, documentation, and more. You can check it out below:
WordSesh has been awesome in general. The conference is still happening. It’s running 24 hours straight, completely online. We had over 200 people in chat while we talked, which was fantastic.
I also spent about fifteen minutes talking with Coen Jacobs and Scott Basgaard, from WooThemes, in their talk on WooCommerce. It was very nice of them to invite me to give my perspective on WooCommerce.
