This week I’m talking to a very special guest, Alain Schlesser. Alain the first European guest on the podcast and I’ve been itching to chat to him since I started this.
Since becoming a WordPress Consultant, Alain has made his mark on the WordPress project. He has been involved in contributing to WordPress core and is currently the maintainer for WP-CLI, the command line interface for WordPress. He has spoken at a variety of WordCamps, including WordCamp Europe and WordCamp US.
Alain is a fascinating chap to talk to and we delved into all variety of topics from his first year as a freelance consultant, the advantages of being actively involved in a community and how he’s working to improve the core of WordPress. I especially enjoyed discussing the differences between US and European based developers.
