Believe it or not, I have never — ever — properly interview John James Jacoby, also know as JJJ or J-trip. John is the lead developer on the BuddyPress and bbPress projects, and has been working for Automattic since November 2010. In this interview we talk about the futures of both BuddyPress and bbPress, or “the bbs”, his slew of old jobs, and something called a Faquith.
You’ve been warned.
See the various listening options below, or have a listen straight away (The interview is approximately one hour long.):
I don’t have time codes for you this week, but I can tell you we discussed:
- BuddyPress 1.6
- The new BuddyPress (and bbPress) Codex
- When/if BuddyPress could go 100% to custom post types
- The Automattic Social Team
- BuddyPress on WordPress.org and BuddyPress.org
- John’s choice plugins for BuddyPress (mentioned BP-Media and Privacy)
- John’s old jobs, which included a shoe store and DJ at a roller rink
- Right near the end, I mentioned he looks like Mike Krahulik, and we discussed Faquiths (like this one, sort of)
