A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to chat with Matt Medeiros [once again] about various topics related to WordPress.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Matt for several years now, got a chance to hang with him at WordCamp US 2016, and continue to chat with him (when he’s not #medeirosing) both on podcasts and via other channels.

Yup – it’s one of those cases where you meet someone on Twitter, and they become friends. That does happen, you know.

But I digress.

Instead, how about some more fun (or at least more interesting) things?

Products, Services, Blogging, WordPress

In this episode of the Matt Report, I had a chance to talk about managing products and services in the context of WordPress which is something I’ve not talked about in previous episodes.

Products, Services, Blogging, and WordPress

You can read a breakdown of the conversation in the show notes, but the gist of the episode is as follows:

[Tom] balances his consulting and development business along with teaching and blogging with a focus on  Object Oriented Programming (OOP) encouraging people to write good code.

Furthermore, some of the things we discuss include:

  • How I’m beginning to branch out into memberships on this site,
  • How Pressware has grown over the past seven years from me into a team of people (who I’m incredibly proud of whom to work),
  • My take on the future of WordPress and how consumers – not developers – are likely to be the ones to influence where it goes,
  • Along with much more.

If you’re not subscribed to the Matt Report podcast, I recommend it. He features a variety of different guests all of whom participate in the WordPress economy in their way.

You’re likely to find yourself exposed to a few new ideas or a new take on something about which you already know.
