Fresh WP Goodness...

chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip...

but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast.

So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife.

Our latest episodes...

20 – What do clients need to know about web software licenses?

My oh my! Software licenses. What a knotty subject that it. It seems we both came to WordPress seeing software primarily as the tools we use to build websites. I mean who asks a plumber what spanner he (sometimes she) uses to fix a boiler? Okay, maybe Nathan might, but that’s not the point!

19 – What do you need to know to offer a full web design service

Today we ask ourselves what skills do we need to offer a full web design service. That sounded like a great topic. It turns out it’s a bit slippery this one.Is a webdesigner like a graphic designer for the web or someone who designs business solutions that are realised on the web?

18 – What’s so great about WordCamp?

In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence today is “World day of making a podcast about WordCamps”.

Even more freakily (is that really a word?) we have both just recently attended our first WordCamps. I know, you’re right – it’s almost unbelievable!

17 – What should we expect from WP support?

No guests this week. Just Nathan and David. Two guys in their middle youth chatting about stuff we love.
Ok, there maybe little bit of venting, but actually this is quite a nice topic.
Happy “Knowledge Base” day 😉

16 – Alternative revenue streams for freelancers with Davinder Singh Kainth

Today we talk about multiple income streams with Davinder Singh Kainth. Many will know Davinder from his ProBeaver site, weekly newsletter and tireless support in the Beaver Builder Facebook Group.

15 – How to stop clients ruining your work with Adam Lacey

In this episode we are joined by Adam Lacey from penguinmedia.co.uk. We chat about coping when enthusiastic clients want to exercise their creativity. We ask how much we restrict their role both during and after the website build?

14 – The development of Page Builders with Doug Belchamber

Today we are joined by Doug Belchamber for a chat about the development of page builders. Naturally, we’re huge Beaver Builder fans so this episode is very much inspired by the Alpha release of “Beaver Themer”.

13 – Hani Mourra from Simple Podcast Press plugin

In this, episode 13 of the WP Builds podcast, we take a slightly different direction! We have Hani Mourra on, telling us about his experiences building a WordPress plugin in the podcasting space.

12 – Top five tools that we cannot live without

This week David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the 5 tools that they could not live without.
This is not supposed to be some sensationalist list that makes you want to go out and buy things! Rather, it’s just the tools that we’ve settled upon after trying out quite a few over the years.

11 – The feast and famine cycle of a web developer

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast Nathan Wrigley and David Waumsley talk about the feast / famine cycle of being a freelancer.
Of course, we don’t have the answers, but we we are experimenting with approaches.

10 – Work / Life balance

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the subject of work / life balance.
What time of the day do you start work, and what time do you stop? Perhaps you work around your family commitments, or do the family have to work around you?

9 – Promoting a web design business

In this, episode 9 of the WPBuilds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the topic of promoting a web design business. Being the non-experts that they both are, they do some of the things that they talk about. Most of the ideas are things that they’ve heard about, but don’t do!

"WP Builds is the pub WordPress podcast. Easy to listen to, great advice and a good place to catch up and talk nonsense. I love it."

vaughan

Vaughan Simons

"WP Builds has rapidly become my favourite WordPress podcast. I love its thoughtful discussions about so many aspects of working with WP, combined with an irreverent sense of humour. And it's incredible to realise that Nathan and David play the cheesy closing music live at the end of each episode with the accompaniment of the WP Builds House Band. That's real dedication."

Richard Aronson

"There’s a lot of great WordPress information floating around on the internet, almost too much. Instead of freaking out, trying to find it all, I’ve settled on a few podcasts they really keep me informed. WPBuilds is at the top of my list. Nathan and David do a great job hosting. Plus the cheesy music makes me feel all warm inside."

"I love WP Builds because it gives me WP news so I don't have to read WP Tavern. David and Nathan invariably interview the creators of the tools I love the most, and that's also great and so useful. Plus, WP Builds has the absolute BEST intro music of any podcast in the world. AND they make me laugh. And last but by no means least, I won a lifetime Project Huddle subscription in the latest WP Builds amazing contest! Woop-woop! What's not to love! Listen up, you crazy fools. You NEED WP-Builds."

Kyle Van Deusen

"WP Builds has helped me grow and expand my business. I learn so much, and love having new friends "across the pond". So throw another shrimp on the barby, or whatever you say over there."

"Podcasts bore me, so I seldom listen to them if any at all. To be honest, WP Builds podcasts are the only podcasts I've listened to for the past several months. All the best guys"

anthony

Anthony Jones

"WP Builds has the right mix of high value content and god-awful jokes and music. What's not to love?"

paul

Paul W. Pyle

"I only manage four websites, so why would I want to listen to WPBuilds? Well...for the techy news; the witty repertoire; the great information; the great guests; and to support two guys who are always willing to give of themselves to help someone like me! Lift a pint!"

athlone

Athlone Harris-Compton

"WP Builds is Really good fun, informative, useful to almost everyone in the WordPress ecosystem and above all hosted by two genuine guys. It's my favourite work related podcast!"

dave

Dave Toomey

"You know that feeling in winter when you get into bed just after you've put on crisp clean sheets and the electric blanket is set just right? That's the feeling I get listening to Nathan & David on the WPBuilds podcast. The excellent content and banter is a surprising bonus. Love it."

What an ugly man!

Nathan Wrigley

"It's utter rubbish!"

David Waumsley

David Waumsley

"I agree with what Nathan said!"
