WPWeekly Episode 192 – Infinite Possibilities With Dan Griffiths

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Dan Griffiths, founder of Section214. We spend the first half of the show learning about Griffiths’ interest in technology at a young age.

Once out of the military, Griffiths experienced difficulties finding a job. He discovered Easy Digital Downloads and explains how working on a ticket and creating an API led to getting a job offer from Pippin Williamson. Since accepting the job offer, Griffiths has published 22 plugins to the WordPress plugin directory and has attended several WordCamps.

Later in the show, we discuss HostPress, an open-source, extensible server control panel built on top of WordPress. He describes his motivation behind the project and why he thinks webhosts need a better solution. Near the end of the interview, Griffiths shares his thoughts on the WP REST API that will eventually be added to WordPress and what it means for the project’s future.

Stories Discussed:
