In this episode of the Post Status Draft Podcast, Joe and Brian interview Scott Taylor, a WordPress Core Committer and the Release Lead for WordPress 4.4, and then talk about WordCamp US and Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word.
Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Joe Hoyle — the CTO of Human Made — and myself.
In this episode, Joe and I interview Scott Taylor, who works at The New York Times, is a WordPress Core Committer, and has lead the release of WordPress 4.4. We discuss dig into many WordPress 4.4 features, the thinking behind them, what it’s like to lead a release, and core development in general.
We also talked about WordCamp US, where we recorded the podcast from, including Scott’s experience speaking during the State of the Word. After the interview with Scott, Joe and I dig more into the State of the Word and WordCamp US in general.
The interview with Scott is first and Joe and I switch to WCUS and the State of the Word around 37 minutes in.
