WPWeekly Episode 242 – Interview with Eric Meyer

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Eric Meyer. Meyer is an American web design consultant and author. He is best known for his advocacy work on behalf of web standards, most notably Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which is a technique for managing how HTML is displayed.

We start off the show by discussing the technology of the 70s and 80s and how Meyer got involved with the CSS language. We then go in-depth on a number of topics covered in his WordCamp Northeast Ohio keynote presentation on Designing for Real Life. Near the end of the interview, we find out what the state of CSS is and some of the key developments to keep an eye on.

Stories Discussed:

WordPress 4.6 Beta 4
Eric Meyer – Designing for Real Life

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

One response to “WPWeekly Episode 242 – Interview with Eric Meyer”

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the mention listened on Friday morning but was pretty busy so unable to reply at the time and yeah I watch WordPress TV sometimes and they are good. And yeah it is a pity about that last WordPress Camp in Auckland I was using WordPress for awhile then but only just getting into the community side and listening to you guys then. Most of my work I do now is for clients up in Auckland now so if it happened again would be fine flying up there for it.

    Also my name is spoken more like “sider” but that is normal most people don’t know how to say it, so no biggie.

    Oh and New Zealand is more commonly referred as “Middle Earth” now ever since “Lord of the Rings”. But we know what you mean with down under and would include both but more of an Australian thing.

    And interesting Podcast, especially for me being younger and hearing the reasoning for HTML and CSS rules.
