WPWeekly Episode 147 – Interview With Japh Thompson

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, I sat down with Japh Thompson to discuss his experience working at Envato for the past four years. Thompson worked in support before becoming the WordPress Evangelist for ThemeForest. In the interview, we learned what it was like to be a liaison between a huge theme marketplace and the WordPress Community.

We learned how difficult it was to try to change the negative perception of ThemeForest while working alongside the community. Last but not least, we learned what he’s working on at X-Team.
