WPWeekly Episode 290 – Putting The Rad in Brad

In this episode, I’m joined by special guest co-host Brad Williams, Co-Founder and CEO of the website design and development agency WebDevStudios. Brad shared his experience at CampPress and is looking forward to attending the event again in 2018.

We discussed the recent move to moderate all comments on the Tavern again. We covered the news of the week and near the end of the show, Brad describes why his company gives back to WordPress by participating in the Five for the Future initiative.
