Touching Base With Nathan Rice At WordCamp Raleigh

It’s been a long time since I had the chance to talk with Nathan Rice face to face. The last opportunity I had was at WordCamp Dallas in 2008 which was my first WordCamp that I attended. Since that time, Nathan has worked for iThemes, ModThemes, and now resides at StudioPress where he ended up having a strong hand in developing the Genesis Theme. In this interview, I ask him how things are going with his employment at StudioPress. I also have him explain the strengths behind the Genesis theme framework. Last but not least, Nathan describes the features he is most excited for regarding WordPress 3.0

  1. Thanks for posting the interview Jeff. Nathan has mad skills, really listens to user requests and is always very helpful in the StudioPress forums.

    WordPress 3.0 and the upcoming version of Genesis is going to be one heck of a combination.


  2. I agree with Brad, Nathan is one heck of a dev and Genesis is dripping with potential.

    Thanks for posting this series of videos.


  3. There are a couple more questions I wish I had asked Nathan but I hope to send them to him via email and perform a follow up interview. I haven’t noticed any other popular developers move around like Nathan who always take the company he is associated with to the next level. That is why I think his story and his career path is interesting. He reminds me of an all star player that occasionally goes into free agency only to be picked up soon after.
