WPWeekly Episode 303 – Interview With Zac Gordon, Technology Educator

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Zac Gordon. We discussed a wide range of topics including, balancing freelance work with educating, an overview of Gutenberg from an educator’s perspective, and potential brand issues if the Gutenberg name was deprecated. We also talked about some of the difficulties involved with creating a course around a feature that’s not yet part of WordPress core.

Stories Discussed:

iThemes Acquired by LiquidWeb
WooCommerce 3.3 Released
Easy Updates Manager Acquired by UpdraftPlus

Picks of the Week:

John James Jacoby suggested Beam Authentic. Beam Authentic is a wearable, connected, smart button that can be programmed to display different images through an app.

  1. Hey Jeff,

    Any reason comments are disabled on the last few posts?


    1. I was able to track the issue down. Recent posts that were written in and published from Gutenberg 2.1 for some reason disabled comments on the post. I’ve since re-enabled comments for recently published posts.
