WordPress Community Interviews With Ken Kramer and Topher DeRosia

I want to thank all of the people who have agreed to do the video interviews. Sometimes trying to get a day and a time scheduled is an issue but everything works out in the end.

As I do more interviews I find myself getting more comfortable while recording. Many thanks to the people who have made comments and suggestions for improvements. I am also learning more about editing the interviews and hope to make the videos more enjoyable to watch.

“Strive to improve!”

 

Ken Kramer

Ken has been involved in WordPress for 3 years and attended his first WordCamp in 2015. Ken, along with members of the Lehigh Valley WordPress Meetup, decided to organize WordCamp Lehigh Valley.

 

Topher DeRosia

Topher is a WordPress Developer who has a passion for life success stories. He started HeroPress (the first story appearing in March 2015) with the idea of people telling how being involved in the WordPress Community changed their lives.

WordPress Community Interviews – Adam Warner & Shelby Elliott

The following interviews are the final two that I was able to record at WordCamp Northeast Ohio. I’m not sure what WordCamp I will attend next but I have several Skype interviews lined up. My idea for the video interviews is NOT to have featured news but to have a varied selection of guest from several different areas of the WordPress Community

Adam Warner

Adam is a member of the SiteLock Team. He likes to say that “My job title is WordPress Evangelist and it’s one that explains not only my core values and my personality, but also my role in contributing to the WordPress project as a whole.”

Shelby Elliott

Shelby is the owner of Corner Market Media where she likes to help people solve their web design and marketing issues. She is a member of the WordCamp Columbus Team.

WordPress Community Interviews – Michael Wiginton & Chris Lema

Several weeks ago the WordPress TV team members kicked around the idea of interviewing people in the WordPress Community. Several different ideas were discussed such as recording methods, length of the interviews, types of questions, etc. As far as “who” to interview, it was decided that anybody who could stand to talk to us for 5 to 10 minutes would be a suitable candidate.

Michael Wiginton

Michael has been with the WPTV team for over 4 years. I wanted Michael to be the first interviewee because he has been a tremendous help to me since I began my involvement with WPTV. Michael also volunteers with WordCamp Atlanta.

Chris Lema

Chris Lema certainly needs no introduction. I met him for the first time last weekend at WordCamp Northeast Ohio, where we were able find a quiet corner and talk for a few minutes.

Meet the Moderators: Jerry Bates

There are so many great videos created at WordCamps and WordPress meetups around the world. As mentioned in December, 441 WordCamp videos were published to WordPress.tv by the end of 2012! We want to ensure these talks, presentations, and tutorials are shared with as many people as possible.

So, we’re very excited about the new team of WordPress.tv moderators. We formed a team of volunteers to review and approve the video content uploaded to WordPress.tv to ensure accuracy and quality, and to moderate comments and engage with the community.

Here on the WordPress.tv blog, we’d like to introduce you to these moderators in a Q&A post series. These moderators are WordPress enthusiasts — just like many of you out there — and we want to share their stories about how they got involved with WordPress.

First up in our Q&A series? Jerry Bates.
