Let’s talk about WordPress meetups! On this episode of The WPCandy Roundtable Podcast, I asked four awesome WordPress meetup co-organizers to chat about what makes a quality meetup and how they do what they do. We also went over what they would recommend to new WordPress meetup organizers.
Joining me on the podcast are Angie Meeker (Columbus, Ohio WordPress Meetup), Brian Richards (Grand Rapids, Michigan WordPress Meetup), Steve Zehngut (Orange County WordPress Meetup) and Aaron Jorbin (Washington, D.C. WordPress Meetup). These folks know what they’re talking about.
Still not sure about listening? Steve Zehngut and Aaron Jorbin each co-organize events with a full roster count of over 800 and 1,200, respectively. That’s a couple of times the size of most large WordCamps, folks.
I’m happy to present episode number two of the WPCandy Roundtable Podcast, this time with the BuddyPress Core Team of John James Jacoby, Boone Gorges, and Paul Gibbs. They spoke for just over an hour about issues of interest to them within the BuddyPress community, and where things are going in the near future.
This episode is sponsored by the upcoming WordPress service Raft.io and the Typecase plugin by UpThemes.
The gentleman also wanted me to say that if there were further questions you had about BuddyPress after listening, you’re welcome to leave them here and they will stop by and have a look at them.
In this, the first ever episode of the Roundtable Podcast, I chatted with Mike McAlister, Jake Caputo, and Chris Molitor. (Pippin Williamson had a baby today — congrats Pippin! — so we’ll get him on a future episode of the show.)
Mike, Jake, and Chris have all built their businesses by selling WordPress themes in the ThemeForest marketplace. Naturally, we discussed the nature of marketplaces and selling themes quite a bit. We talked support, typical customers, pricing, building your own brand, and theme business models. In other words if you like WordPress theme discussions, you should like this episode.
Be sure to check out Mike’s Okay Themes, Jake’s ThemeThrift, Chris’s themes on ThemeForest, and of course Pippin’s plugins when you get a chance. And keep an eye on the Stream broadcast schedule so you know the next time we’re planning to go live with a new podcast recording!
