WPWeekly Episode 284 – Catching Up with David Peralty

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by David Peralty. Peralty is a prolific writer with more than 30K articles published online for various media outlets. He also co-hosted WordPress Weekly episodes 41-75 in 2009.

We discuss the rise and evolution of blog networks over the years, the current state of WordPress development, and what he thinks of Gutenberg.

We have a great conversation about working remotely and how working in an office with great people focused on the same goal can be an energizing experience. Later in the show, Jacoby and I discuss the news of the week, including the idea of opt-in usage data tracking in WordPress.
