In this episode, I’m joined by John James Jacoby. We recap WordCamp Chicago 2017 and learn about what he’s been up to as of late. Jacoby was recently elected as a trustee by the Village of East Troy, WI. We discussed what lessons he’s learned through open source software development that he’ll apply to his Trustee role.
We talk about how important mental health is and near the end of the show, he provides status updates on the bbPress and BuddyPress projects. Jacoby also weighed in on the stories making headlines in recent weeks.
