WP Late Night #3: “BruddyPress” edition


In episode 3 of WP Late Night, the “BruddyPress” edition, Jake Goldman of 10up joins Brad and I as guest host. Dre Armeda was feeling under the weather this week, so we wish him well and a speedy recovery. In this episode we discussed upcoming WordCamps, the BuddyPress codex, version control, complex themes, and — well, at this point you’d be best just listening to the episode. It’s a good one.

  1. 2 quick things. A) Not all your podcasts are categorized under your “Podcasts” nav menu.

    B) I was wondering if the crew has any advice for people trying to learn PHP. Books, websites, secret fraternal organizations… etc.


  2. You guys should test your volumes before going live.
    This is the 3rd episode and you haven’t fixed that!,
    I want to listen to you guys, you talk about interesting topics, but
    the production is amateurish.

  3. I’m just checking out the podcast. Awesome show! At one point there was a request for callers to call into the show and there was a brief discussion regarding audience participation in future episodes. There’s a free live broadcast tool used by @garyvee called Spreecast (spreecast.com) that may be of benefit to you for that purpose. The thought crossed my mind and I thought I’d pass it on. You guys do a phenomenal job! Keep up the good work and thanks for the creation of WP Quarterly.

    Best regards,
