WPWeekly Episode 89 – Interview With Brad Williams

wordpressweekly1This was like having two episodes in one. During the first 20 minutes of the show, Hal Stern and Brad Williams gave me the 411 on their upcoming WordPress book, Professional WordPress. This book was written to take people directly into the core code of WordPress to figure out how it works and to explain how the internals of WordPress such as filters, hooks, and functions come together. The second part of the show featured an interview with Brad Williams of WebDevStudios.com where we discussed his consulting business built around an open source project. We also talked about some of the key differences in Joomla and Drupal compared to WordPress. Last but not least, we talked about their recently released plugin, CollabPress which may be one of the first plugins to really bring functioning task management into WordPress.

  1. Good interview. I for one had totally missed the Professional WordPress book so that was great to learn about. Sounds like a better choice for me than the WP Bible.
    I had never heard of CollabPress either and it looks like a really interesting plugin.
    But I do think WP has at least some flaws, he chickened out a little I think. You could tell there was issues underneath ;). Aaron was more forthcoming when he answered the same interview question.

  2. Ah okay, it is working now. Seems like talkshoe was being down (or you changed the link already ;-) )…

  3. @Andreas Nurbo – Actually the question caught me off guard. I’m so use to answering why I like working w/ WordPress that I’m not used to talking about what it sucks at. Custom post types was my biggest complaint for the longest, but 2.9 solved that problem

    Let me know what you think about CollabPress and Professional WP!
