WPWeekly Episode 154 – All About The Customizer

On this episode of WordPress Weekly, we give you the low down on all the new features in WordPress 4.0 beta 1. Later in the show, Matt Wiebe who works for Automattic as a design engineer, joins us to discuss his thoughts on the WordPress customizer. Most of what we talked about stems from his recent blog post highlighting some of the roadblocks the customizer has in its current state. Near the end of the show, we have a candid conversation on how the feature may evolve in the next 2-3 years. After the interview, I’m more optimistic of what the future holds for the customizer.
