WPWeekly Episode 82 – The Tinfoil Hat Brigade

wordpressweekly1In episode 82, I geeked out with Otto42 and Jeremy Clarke as we discussed a number of topics centered around WordPress development. This episode will most likely go over a lot of people’s heads but I still think it’s worth a listen if you’re at all interested in the privacy stuff that happened a few weekends ago or want to hear us talk about the issues surrounding testing and WordPress.

  1. Really enjoyed the roundtable with Jeremy and Otto.

    I’m looking forward to canonical plugins that can be relied on. If BuddyPress can be considered the first canonical plugin, I’d like to see bbPress as the second one, hopefully it is just as successful.

    I wonder if we will ever see any canonical themes? It sounds like the opinions for the 2010 theme are split between a simple theme that can be learned from and easily modified and a more advanced framework. I want the default theme to be simple myself, it’d be accessible to the most people. But I could see the advanced theme framework being a canonical theme.

    Yeah, this was a pretty easy one! Even if I hadn’t read this on bbpress.org before, Christmas would seem like a pretty safe guess:

    “The day after Christmas 2004 Matt started coding from the ground up and two days later the first version of bbPress was pushed live on WordPress.org.”

  2. Enjoyed the show. I did hear about the privacy “problem” but as many others I guess didn’t know a lot about it. After listening to the show I think just as Otto I don’t really care … I’ll tell the world … just today I added Ian Steward’s new Kirby theme ;-)
