Conversations with Mor10, Episode 4: WordCamp Vancouver 2012


WordPress wouldn’t exist without the WordPress community, and WordCamp is where the community comes out to play. Over the past two years I’ve had the honour of being a co-organizer of WordCamp Vancouver (WordCamp:Developers in 2011) and in that role I’ve met a lot of very interesting people.

WordCamp conferences focus the attention on leaders in the WordPress community, both local and international, but as any attendee will tell you, the attendees can be just as interesting. To put this to the test I geared up and interviewed random WordCamp Vancouver attendees for my podcast. It all started with a simple ice breaker: “Tell me a story about WordPress”.

Conversations with Mor10, Episode 3: Aaron Gustafson and the Web Standards Sherpa


Web standards matter, now more than ever. While at MIX11 I attended a session with web standards guru Aaron Gustafson on a new project called Web Standards Sherpa. It’s a great site where web standards and usability experts dissect sites and point out the good and the bad to help all of us build a better web.

After his talk (cut in below) I caught up with Aaron and we had a chat about the project and web standards in general. Listen and enjoy.

When you are done, check out Web Standards Sherpa on the web and on Twitter, stalk Aaron on Twitter and watch his MIX11 talk.

Conversations with Mor10, episode 2: Flynn O’Connor on JS, Swipe Behaviours and Responsive Development

Yep, I am finally re-launching my much talked about but pretty much non-existent podcast, Conversations with Mor10. The first (and until now only) episode was posted more than a year ago but now I’ve finally gotten my setup in order and I’m going to make a valiant effort to keep posting. There are several interesting interviews racked up in my queue so stay tuned.

In this 2nd installment of Conversations with Mor10 I chat with Vancouver WordPress developer Flynn O’Connor about his Vancouver WordPress Meetup Group talk entitled Customizing your WordPress site for the iPad. Flynn talks about his experiences with different JavaScript libraries and the challenges designers and developers face in the new reality of touch screens and swipe behaviours.

You can find Flynn at Fsquare Design and stalk him on Twitter @thoronas.
