Marcus Couch


In this time travel inspired episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I catch you up on the news of the week. I start the show by sharing my experience attending the first WordCamp Hampton Roads in Virginia Beach, VA. While in Virginia Beach, I visited and worked from the Rocketgenius office and observed how the team behind Gravity Forms works on a daily basis. In the show, I explain why I think the company’s setup is the best of both worlds for distributed workers.

We discuss what the future of WordPress may be like 10 years from now and whether or not it’s time for the XML-RPC protocol to be removed from WordPress. We end the show with the plugin picks of the week.
