A few weeks ago, Matt Mullenweg (co-creator of WordPress) came by Yahoo to talk to a bunch of Yahoo! bloggers about the current and future state of WordPress. After the meeting, I sat down with him for our Developer Spotlight series on YDN Theater to catch up on various topics.
In this 12 minute interview, we talk about:
- Turning 24
- Surprising uses of WordPress
- The next big WordPress release (new features)
- Scaling Automattic and WordPress.com
- bbPress (Automattic's message board software)
- PHP4 vs. PHP5
- PHP vs. other languages for web development
Thanks to Matt for coming to visit and taking the time to talk with me on camera.
