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.

This week’s podcast is a little late and a lot unedited. Unfortunately last week I was dealing with some things which affected my ability to properly review, edit and prepare the podcast. Rather than post it days late, I’ve posted it here in it’s more or less unedited format, so I hope you enjoy it.

This week I’m chatting to Hugh Lashbrooke, and Automattic employee and full time sponsored member of the WordPress Community team. While Hugh comes from a strong developer background, his love of the community and working with people made him choose a different career path, one which ultimately lead to us crossing paths and me switching to WordPress, for which I am eternally grateful.  I always enjoy chatting to Hugh about community relevant topics and I hope you enjoy my interview with him.

There are currently no show notes, but I hope to update them soon.
