WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/09/08

For the past several weeks I have been keeping my eye out for a WordCamp video that was about the Gutenberg Editor Plugin. All of my searches have returned this result…

I found several videos on YouTube but that wasn’t going to do me any good. This blog is about WordCamp videos submitted to WordPress TV.

So, my beady little mind started to churn and I decided to create my own video. I reached out to Tammie Lister, who is one of the leads for the Gutenberg project. My first thought was that Tammie could recommend someone that I could contact. I was pleasantly surprised when Tammie stated that she could show me some of the features of the plugin. So, after a little planning and a short discussion before we started the video, here are the results.

 

WordPress Community Interview With Daniel J. Lewis

Daniel J. Lewis has a passion for podcasting and for helping others in their podcasting endeavors. It is easy to get caught up in his enthusiasm. I feel fortunate to have been able to chat with him for a few minutes.

I thought it might be interesting to interview somebody who uses WordPress to leverage their business.

He is an Internet entrepreneur, award-winning podcaster, podcast consultant and has been the keynote speaker at several conferences.

Near the end of the interview, Daniel discusses his search for a plugin to meet certain needs and the steps he used to find what he needed. It is worth listening to.

With Daniel being a professional, I was somewhat hesitant to interview him as I feel that I have a lot of room for improvement as far as my podcasting skills. But like all of the other interviews, he was eager to talk about his profession and was a gracious guest!

WordPress 4.6 has been released. It is the 4th major version release where I was able to contribute code to the WordPress core. Giving back to the WordPress community; especially in the form of core contributions — has been an incredibly empowering and inherently humble experience for me
