WPWeekly Episode 296 – Gutenberg, Telemetry, Calypso, and More With Matt Mullenweg

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Matt Mullenweg, co-creator of the WordPress project and CEO of Automattic. We discussed a wide range of topics including, his role on the board of directors at GitLab, Telemetry or data-usage gathering in WordPress, and the WordPress Growth Council.

We learned what’s happening with the Mobile teams inside Automattic, the future of Calypso, and the role of Pressable as a testing bed. Last but not least, we find out how beneficial joining HackerOne has been for WordPress and why WordPress.com finally allowed the installation of third-party themes and plugins through its Business Plan.

  1. I’m not going to listen to any more interviews with Matt. He seems defensive and doesn’t reveal enough to make the time spent listening worthwhile.

    1. I completely disagree with your observations – I found Matt extremely open in this interview. Well worth listening.
