WordPress Community Interview With Denis Yanchevskiy

Denis Yanchevskiy is a developer living in Moscow, Russia. He is active in the local WordPress Community. Denis is active in the WordPress Support Forums with over 2,200 posts.

Denis has several “How To” videos on WordPress TV and would like to see more native language videos being submitted. His videos are also on YouTube.

He also participates in the Polyglots Team as a GTE, translating WordPress core, plugins, themes.

I do want to sincerely thank Denis for the extra effort he put in preparing for the interview.

When I first contacted him, he stated that his English was very limited (but then so is mine). We came up with a plan to prepare a series of questions, which Denis researched and prepared answers . It worked very well and I am very grateful for the chance to interview Denis.

WordPress Community Interview With Petya Raykovska

I feel very fortunate to have been able to spend a few minutes interviewing Petya. I first contacted her in early May and we were finally able to get our schedules worked out a few days ago.

Petra is a native of Bulgaria and is currently employed by Human Made. She is a contributor to the Core, Community & Polyglots Teams and was one of the organizers for WordCamp Europe 2016.

She took a very active role in the Global WordPress Translation Day which was held on April 24th, 2016 and continued for 24 hours. A recap of the event can be found on the Polyglot P2 page here: Recap and Results. Also, videos of the event are available on WordPress TV.

On a side note, I am normally a very positive person. I try very hard to have a good attitude at work and at home. After Petya and I ended our Skype call, I found myself more upbeat than usual, a spring in my step and a song in my heart. Her excitement is very infectious!

Make sure to watch the video all the way through. I had a little surprise for Petya near the end!
