Upcoming Interview with Jane Wells WordPress Designer

April 22nd, 2009

I have some terrific news – Jane Wells has been gracious enough to agree to an interview with me about some WordPress related topics.

We are going to discuss bug hunts, WordPress 2.8 and what it is like to work on interface and experience design for WordPress.

It is possible that if you have ever attended a WordCamp then you might have heard Jane speak about WordPress as she travels a lot for those.  I have not had that opportunity yet but am looking for an event close by to be able to attend.

One other area of the interview that Jane is willing to take questions on is from you, the readers of So if you have a question you would like me to ask Jane as part of the interview please post it in the comments of this post and we will select a few to ask when we talk with her.

I think this is a great opportunity to learn more about the development side of WordPress and I am very appreciative of Jane being willing to participate.

In the time being you can get an idea about Jane’s background and current activities by checking out her blog at Jane On WordPress or her Twitter account.

    Why is WordPress so male-dominated, and what, if anything, is being done to address that? There seems to be no shortage of female geeks involved with Drupal, for example.

      There are actually dozens of women involved with WP plugin development and theme design; I think they’re a little more low key than the guys. :-D

      Lorelle, Linda McPhee-Cobb, Harley Quine, and Chiq Montes are good examples. All of them are very productive.

    I am really looking forward to this interview.


    I was intrigued by the recent post on the WordPress development blog about contributing to WordPress through graphic design. What are the “first steps” an interface or graphic designer should take if they want to get involved in contributing to WordPress? What are some of the challenges you face in trying to integrate design contributions into the WordPress core? Finally, do you think crowdsourcing is always the best way of making design decisions?

    Why do we care about the male – female makeup of each company. If you enjoy the product then…then enjoy it.
