WPCandy Podcast 36 with David Bisset

In this episode of our podcast David Bisset was kind enough to join me to discuss his upcoming event WordCamp Miami, BuddyPress, and other noteworthy WordPress news of the week. David even gets greedy and offers up somewhere around 3 or 4 WordPress picks for the week. Honestly, I lost count.

You can follow David on Twitter, visit his website (and hire him!) and of course register/sponsor/adore WordCamp Miami in April.

The WPCandy Podcast #32: “Uncle Ben’s plugin list”

4

Episode #32 of the WPCandy Podcast sees Brian Krogsgard and I (yeah, seriously!) running down the most important WordPress news of the week in just about 30 minutes. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it here again: if the other podcasts we produce here overwhelm you, the WPCandy Podcast proper is likely the show for you. Very little discussion, but quite a bit news and links.

If you only listen to one WordPress podcast this week, make it this one.

This episode is sponsored by the Typecase plugin by UpThemes and the upcoming WordPress service Raft.io.

This episode of the WPCandy Podcast sees Ryan, Brian, and Daniel discuss the most interesting news items of the WordPress community this holiday week. Grab a cup of coffee, maybe cocoa or eggnog, and enjoy the Christmas (Christmas, and Christmas) edition of the podcast.

This week’s podcast was a bit longer than normal (approximately 90 minutes) so the breakdown of topics discussed below also include approximate time codes, just in case you want to jump to a specific discussion that you care about.

This is a bit of a long podcast, so to make things easier on you I’ve broken down what we talked about minute by minute. It’s just because we love you all so much:

This week Brian’s pick was the very recently released Gravity Forms add-on for the WooCommerce plugin (demonstrated), which he picked up yesterday. Ryan’s pick was the User Switching plugin, and Daniel opted out of picks this week.

WPCandy Podcast 28: 3.3 and then some edition

5

What better way to round out a work week but with the WPCandy Podcast? Okay don’t answer that, because I’m sure there are much better ways. Let’s just forget I said anything.

Brian, Daniel and myself are all present this time around, and quite a bit happened this week for us to talk about. WordPress 3.3 came out, which of course is a worthwhile topic. In addition DevPress has changed gears, a ThemeForest author crossed the million dollar mark in sales, and—wait, why don’t you just listen to the episode already?

Link-wise, this week we discussed:

Daniel’s pick this episode was the recently launched WP LifeGuard, Brian picked the Stripe payment gateway, and my own pick was the Featured Image Column plugin.

WPCandy Podcast 27: Making us look bad edition

I know what you’re thinking—it isn’t possible. Could this really be a new WPCandy Podcast? Indeed it is. After a shamefully long gap since the last podcast we’re back at it, this time joined by the newest contributor to WPCandy, Daniel Immke. In this episode we discuss the Quarterly a bit (by the way, pre-order yours), WordPress 3.3 RC1, WordAds, and a couple of fun stories that popped up in the last week or so.

Then we have picks. This week Brian chose the Ambrosite Next/Previous Post Link Plus plugin, which is entirely a mouthful to say. Daniel’s pick was the Headway Themes redesign that went up recently, and my pick (though I’ve yet to play with it) is the Social plugin from Crowd Favorite and MailChimp.
