Episode Info: When you invite the co-founder of WordPress on your podcast, you never know exactly where the conversation will take you. Starting with the basics of WordPress and WooCommerce, the twists and turn took us through open source, blocks, eCommerce and the world as it is today. We not only hear about the tools, but some personal reflections from Matt. A Chat with WordPress Co-Founder Matt Mullenweg from Automattic In episode 58, Jonathan Wold and I chat with Matt about: How Matt does the WooWhen WordPress and eCommerce hit that sweet spotThe growth of WordPress, now the growth of WooHow open source competes with platformsWhat can go wrong in an open-source projectDecision by committeeWhat Matt thinks if the biggest advantage to using WordPress and WooCommerceWhat WooCommerce opens up for the userWooCommerce blocks and more blocksWhere we are with GutenbergMoving online in today’s worldWhat Matt has on his mind in this interesting timeThanks to our sponsors A conversation with Matt is always both inspiring and educational. And he didn’t fail us here. Matt told us what he thought was the time when eCommerce and WordPress intersected—and when he really felt WordPress was prime for eCommerce. We chatted about WordPress growth but also what inspired the growth of WooCommerce. That led into how WooCommerce as an open-source software can compete with other platforms, for example, Shopify. Matt touched on what can go wrong with an open-source project we talked about our experiences with design by committee. I asked him how we would answer the question for a beginner attending a WordCamp if they asked him what is the biggest advantage to using WordPress and WooCommerce to sell online. He took it a bit further, and for those of you who know Matt, I’m sure his answer will not surprise you. We moved into what WooCommerce is bringing to new users and that naturally brought up blocks and WooCommerce blocks and blocks in general took over the conversation. Jonathan and myself, committed users of the new editor, shared our two cents. We rounded it off with talk about the world as it is today and the challenges. Matt opened up with his personal perspective. To really understand this, you will juts have to take a listen yourself. Where to Find Matt on the Web On Twitter @photomattOn Instagram @photomattma.ttDistributed.blogThe Conversation Yes, this the transcript. But not in the traditional sense, transcribed word for word. We do not speak as we write. Often the flow of transcribed content is hard to follow. So I have taken it a few steps further by seriously editing, at times, the conversation and even using my editorial freedom to clarify some points. So enjoy.
