WPWeekly Episode 103 – Interview With Andrew Nacin

wordpressweekly1In this episode of WordPress Weekly, I interviewed WordPress core developer, Andrew Nacin. Andrew joined the core committ team in February of 2010 and since then, he’s been an insanely active contributor all over the WordPress project whether it be through code, the forums, mailing lists, etc. During our conversation, we talked about Andrews life before WordPress, how he became a developer, how he’s able to be so active within the community, his Google Summer of Code project that deals with a theme revision system, and near the end of the show, we talked about some of the ways to contribute to the WordPress project.

This episode of WordPress weekly is brought to you by, BackupBuddy. BackupBuddy is an awesome plugin by the guys at PluginBuddy.com. You can configure BackupBuddy to perform automatic database backups of your site on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule and when the backup process is complete, BackupBuddy will notify you via email. However, one of the killer features of this plugin is its easy migration tool. It’s the plugin I use to backup WPTavern on a daily basis. (P.S.) Speaking of BackupBuddy, they just announced support for Amazon S3.
