Nathan Wrigley and David Waumsley discuss what it is that they like about WordPress, from plugins to people, themes to hosting!

    374 – WordPress turns 21. Hear from 21 voices about what WordPress means to them.

    374 – WordPress turns 21. Hear from 21 voices about what WordPress means to them.

    So this is like no podcast episode I've ever done. Normally it's me talking to one, perhaps two, other people... but not today! A few weeks ago I was on a call with Adam Warner and Marcus Burnette from GoDaddy, and we were trying to come with fun ways to celebrate the 21st birth of WordPress, which is on May 27th 2024. This podcast is the result. It's 21 voices from the WordPress world who recorded themselves speaking about their experiences of WordPress; the software, the community, the things that it's enabled for them. And it's wonderful. It's varied, it's interesting, it's encouraging, it's fun! I truly hope that you enjoyed this episode, I enjoyed making it!

    373 – No Script Show, Episode 10 – User Preferences: rethinking web design

    Once more we bring you a podcast hijack in which the No Script Show takes over the WP Builds podcast, perhaps for the last time? I confess that I'm enjoying this new project very much indeed!

    We get into some of the new features that have been added to CSS and what they enable you to do, and how widely supported they are.

    If you've not listened to the previous 9 episodes, then you won't know that your browser is getting more capable and instead of hacking things together with frameworks and scripts, we can now do many of the 'cool things' with just a smattering of CSS.

    But what are these CSS things, and how do they allow the user of a web page to have some control in what they see, and how do they enable you, the website builder do do things with less dependencies and in shorter amounts of time?

    Listen to find out...

    372 – Alex Borto discusses AI integration in WordPress development

    372 – Alex Borto discusses AI integration in WordPress development

    Today we have the pleasure of hosting Alex Borto, a WordPress developer from France.

    Alex has been part of the WordPress landscape since 2011, educating and inspiring through his popular blog, wpmarmite.com, and a thriving YouTube channel with over 69,000 subscribers.

    In this episode, Alex will delve into his innovative project, WP Turbo Dev, which has been making waves by significantly enhancing the workflow for WordPress developers through the integration of AI technology.

    As the founder of WP Turbo Dev, Alex shares insights into how this tool not only accelerates development processes, but also ensures that, even as AI takes on more routine tasks, the art of development remains irreplaceable for more complex demands.

    We explore the current features, the projected roadmap, and how the tool integrates with popular plugins and themes to provide a comprehensive development experience.

    Alex also talks about the broader implications of AI in WordPress development, reflecting on how developers can leverage AI to improve their coding efficiency, whilst still maintaining a high standard of creativity and functionality.

    He’ll also touch on his initial motivations for starting free WordPress code generators, and how incorporating AI has expanded the capabilities and resources available to the community.

    For both new and experienced developers interested in the future of WordPress and AI, this discussion with Alex Borto promises to be worth a listen.

    371 – No Script Show, Episode 9 – Does Baseline solve our browser support problems?

    371 – No Script Show, Episode 9 – Does Baseline solve our browser support problems?

    Back in the day, all the browsers were enemies. They all went off and decided how they would do things with no regard for what their 'rivals' were doing.

    This was fun and gave us website developers the joy of having to make sure that what you'd built looked decent in most of the popular browsers.

    If you're as old as me and have been in this game for a while, you'll remember shouting at your monitor when things did not work out as planned - which was all the time. I even had a soft rubber mallet, called "The Hardware Hammer" with which I could beat my computer without the costly repair bill!

    Fast forward to today and things are much better. Browser vendors all seem to be working towards a common goal, a common spec.

    But, and there had to be a but... they don't ship all of the feature at the same time. Some browsers support this thing, others don't (yet).

    In this episode we explore where we can go to find out what new features are available in which browsers, so that you can be sure that the site that you're about to ship works well for everyone, no matter how they're viewing it.

Great source of helpful information

David and Nathan just enjoy chatting about their work in their website and WordPress development businesses, including both the good and the bad. Each time there is so much useful information for people starting out in the same environment.
Their interviews with the industry experts are also great to listen to.
