WPWeekly Episode 225 – Interview With Scott Kingsley Clark Lead Developer of Pods

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I interview Scott Kingsley Clark, lead developer of the Pods framework plugin. Clark explains the financial and organizational structure of the Friends of Pods program and how it benefits the plugin’s development.

He also explains what the Fields API project is and its significance to WordPress. To make a long story short, it’s on par with the REST API’s inclusion in core. Last but not least, in a first for WordPress Weekly, Clark sings a song while strumming his Baritone Ukulele.

Easier Excerpts, by Tom McFarlin and Eric Dye from PressWare, automatically expands and contracts the post’s excerpt to eliminate unnecessary white space.
