In this weeks show, Jeff Chandler and I are joined by the founder of BruteProtect, Sam Hotchkiss. We learn the circumstances which lead to the birth of BruteProtect and how it operates. Hotchkiss explains the details of the acquisition with Automattic and how it will be rolled into Jetpack. While some people are not happy that it’s being added to Jetpack, we discuss why it’s a huge win. Last but not least, Hotchkiss explains the process he went through to obtain funding and offers advice to plugin authors who may find themselves in the same position.
