We’re always in groups talking about WordPress software, but rarely do we talk about how we evaluate it. That’s what this episode is about. Do we:
Test software for ourselves?
Trust the views of leading influencers?
Follow the majority view?
Whatever I do on the internet these days, I seem to be being followed about by Mike Killen, the guest for this week. I see his face everywhere, posting here, in a sponsored post there, I cannot get away from him. The reason for this is that a) he’s really got an understanding how how to be on my radar with his products and services b) he’s just so damn handsome, so I cannot miss him when he does appear.
Today we have the hugely talented, young and successful Jack McConnell from Made with Fuel on the show.
Made with Fuel is one-man WordPress web design and development agency based in Bath in the UK that focus on Websites, Online Stores and Membership Sites.
He also makes plugins like Better Notifications for WordPress among others. In this episode he shares his experience of that.
This week we talk to not one, but two lovely developers (Nathan Tyler and Natalie MacLees) from California who have a really interesting take on launching their plugin. Their new plugin, Simply Schedule Appointments is launching BEFORE it’s ready!
We hate to say it, but DIY website building solutions are getting more attractive all the time. They offer an empowering solution to the "I want a website" problem. Are we facing extinction?
Well this is a good episode, we think.
This week, we've got two of the founders of the Beaver Builder plugin for WordPress, Justin Busa and Robby MuCullough on the the show.
In episode 4 of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the role of the web developer and how we can sometimes be a thorn in the side of clients.
We know that dealing with clients can be painful, but what about us? Do we always do the right thing by our clients?
