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.
A happy holidays to you from WordPress.tv!
Josh Grenon of Inspirageek interviews Matt Mullenweg in our first video published this week. They discuss some general tips for entrepreneurs, the development process for (the now released) WordPress 2.9, some basics behind VideoPress and why it’s great, and a few other odds and ends.
This weekend also saw the release of WordPress 2.9, the latest and greatest edition of our favorite software. To herald this event, our very own Michael Pick has composed an introductory video to WordPress 2.9, hitting the major updates and changes you’ll be playing with in the weeks to come. It’s a quick watch—check it out and feel free to embed when you talk about WordPress 2.9 on your own blog.
With the Christmas and New Year’s holidays coming up in the next two weeks, I expect new videos here on WordPress.tv will be few and far between, but we’ll still be here to check out and publish videos you direct us to using our handy contact form.
All of us here at WordPress.tv wish you a very happy holiday season and look forward to more great WordPress videos in 2010!
