In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I discuss the death of Alex King who was a pillar of the WordPress project. King passed away a few days ago from colon cancer. We share stories of meeting and discussing WordPress topics with King and describe his many contributions to WordPress. King will be dearly missed by the WordPress community.
During the second half of the show, we discuss upcoming changes in WordPress 4.4, the lessons I learned moderating comments on WP Tavern, and WordCampus renaming to WPCampus.
