WPWeekly Episode 81 – Interview With Jacob Goldman

wordpressweekly1In this episode of WordPress Weekly, I have a chat with Jacob Goldman of CmurrayConsulting.com to talk about his companies work involving WordPress. During the discussion, we talk about what it’s like to use WordPress for developing custom solutions that WordPress is not really known for as the perception is that the software is primary just for blogging. We also discuss some of the new features in WordPress 2.9, WordCamp Boston and a whole lot more.

*NOTE* Tickets for WordCamp Boston are sold out but if you sign up to the waiting list, there is a chance you could get lucky.

  1. Another great interview Jeffro, Jacob was an interesting guest. WordCamp Boston sounds like a lot of fun I hope some of the sessions end up on WordPress TV.

    As for the slogan, in the first IRC meetup for bbPress, Matt said “it’s like the unofficial WP slogan: we suck less with every release”, which is a pretty cool slogan: http://bbpress.org/blog/2009/12/2009-12-09-meetup/

    I’m excited to see that development on bbPress is getting active again and that so many talented people are stepping up to help. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for bbPress.
