Interview with Matt Mullenweg on the WordPress ecosystem — Draft Podcast

Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Brian Krogsgard.

In this episode, I am joined by Matt Mullenweg, the CEO of Automattic and the co-founder of WordPress. In this episode, we discuss a range of issues facing WordPress today, as well as the various arms of Automattic’s business:

  • WordPress 4.9 features around customization.
  • Progress on the Gutenberg Editor
  • Feature projects and a year of day-to-day project lead
  • The React decision for WordPress, and what came of it
  • WooCommerce, Jetpack and issues they are facing
  • Site building versus blogging on, and their ad campaigns
  • WordPress community, the WordPress website
  • And more!

This was a fun episode, and it’s always a privilege to be able to talk to the leader of the WordPress project. I hope you enjoy it.
