    1: Why WordPress?

    1: Why WordPress?

    Welcome to In the Loop, a WordPress podcast from Blackbird Digital.

    On this show we’ll be discussing every aspect of WordPress—from how it’s built and developed for, to the ways that businesses, organizations, and individuals are using the platform.

    Today I am joined by my colleague and co-host, the Lead Technologist of Blackbird Digital, Cory Hughart, with our first guest, Megan Rose, the Technology Manager of KHM Travel in Brunswick, Ohio and one of the lead organizers of the Northeastern Ohio WordPress Meetup Group.

    The topic for our first episode is “Why WordPress?” Specifically, why have we chosen to specialize in this platform. In answering the question, we chat a bit about our winding career paths and how they led to WordPress, how our development and deployment processes differ, what you can expect from a WordPress MeetUp, and the various ways to participate and give back to the open source community.

    Lastly, if you have any questions about WordPress that you would like Cory or myself to track down an answer to, please email them to podcast@blackbird.digital, and we will answer them when we return with our next episode in March.
