On this birthday celebration episode of WordPress Weekly, Jeff Chandler and I are joined by Automattic CEO, Matt Mullenweg. We covered a lot of ground with Mullenweg discussing the following topics:

  • Update on O2 the successor to the P2 theme
  • Memorable moments of the last 12 years
  • Update on the WordPress history book
  • Status of WordCamp USA
  • The WooThemes/WooCommerce acquisition
  • Hype surrounding the WP REST API
  • The WordPress Mobile App

We talked about a number of other topics as well. We apologize for the audio glitches in this episode as Mullenweg experienced bandwidth issues. He was in Ireland when we interviewed him. We also experienced some technical difficulties with Google Hangouts and I dropped out for about 5 minutes. The biggest interview of the year for me and it was nothing but glitches! Oh well. Good content anyway!
