November 1st, 2008
WordPress Weekly

Our special guest on Halloween night was Jane Wells of Automattic. On this episode, Keith, Jane and I discussed a wide assortment of topics and issues surrounding WordPress and usability. Here is a short list:

  • The Definition Of Usability
  • WordPress 2.7 And Usability
  • The Usability Testing Centers/Environment
  • How WordPress 2.7 Came To Be
  • Is WordPress Bloated?
  • Lessons Learned After WordPress 2.5 Was Released
  • The Status Of WordPress 2.7 And Whether Or Not It Is Delayed
  • In Depth Discussion Of Many Of The New Features And Enhancements In 2.7

And much much more. Be sure to download the show and give it a listen and then come back here to leave a comment letting us know your thoughts regarding what was discussed. I easily consider this episode to be another classic WordPress Weekly.
