Today, Brad and Pippin will be talking to Matt Mullenweg. Matt is the founder of WordPress and the CEO of Automattic. We will be talking about the history of Automattic and what Matt does in his spare time. We’ll also talk about what Matt feels is not talked about enough inside of WordPress. Some of the highlights of the show include:

The tipping point where Matt decided he wanted to get back into the development side.
Why Matt thinks there has been no progress on powering the WP Admin by the REST API and why this is one of his priorities.
What Matt would like to see happen with the WP Admin to make it most successful.
What Automattic looked like in its early days when the team was only a handful of people, as well as what Matt would change if he could go back in time.
How Matt recommends people learn about management and communication.
What Matt chooses to work on when he’s working on code and why.
The things that Matt is most concerned about today.
What Matt feels is lacking attention and interest in the WordPress world.

BRAD: Welcome to Apply Filters, the podcast all about WordPress development. I’m your host, Brad Touesnard, and joining me, as usual, is my cohost, Pippin Williamson PIPPIN: Hello.
BRAD: This is Episode 14 and, in this episode, we’re going to go over a couple of important things to keep in mind when developing for WordPress. Do you want to get started on that, Pippin?
PIPPIN: Sure. So we’ve got a couple of things that we want to cover. And they’re really some of the just general tips and practices that you should be keeping in mind when developing. And these will include things like debug mode, code formatting, and a couple of other things that you may not be quite as familiar with.
Before we jump into that though, why don’t we briefly talk about what we’ve been working on? Brad, do you want to start?
BRAD: Yeah, sure. I was actually testing; a while ago actually, I was testing renewals because the renewals for Migrate WP Pro are coming up, and just testing the system that we had in place. It wasn’t working out. I was trying to fix it, and it still wasn’t working out. So just kind of decided to build my own add-on for WooCommerce to handle our renewals and upgrades. And I just kind

Joining us for episode 17 is Jared Atchison, a well-known developer in the WordPress development world with an impressive portfolio of work.

This episode was sponsored by WP Ninjas, a leading WordPress plugin development team that is constantly innovating and building excellent tools for the rest of us. Recently they announced their new DemoWP Pro system that allows plugin and theme shops to easily setup live demo environments where potential customers can quickly log in and give the plugin or theme a test drive. In their own words:
Do you sell a WordPress plugin or theme? Do you have a demo site that allows potential customers to try out your product? If you don’t, you’re missing a critical tool for reaching customers. If you do, how did you build it? If you’re like most developers, you had to cobble together snippets of found code, backup services, restriction plugins, and prayer. Hoping that the demo
