WPWeekly Episode 283 – A Visit From St. Gutenberg

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I start off the show with an adaptation of ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas‘ created by Clement Clarke Moore. Since we didn’t have a guest, Jacoby and I opened up about our personal lives which turned into a conversation about remote working from home. We also discussed the news of the week, including SiteLock’s acquisition of Patchman, WordPress 4.8.1, and Adobe discontinuing Flash.
