Last weekend was quite important for the Open Source world – in addition to several WordPress events (such as WordCamp Porto, WordCamp Kenya and WP Camp), the Joomla folks had their Joomla World Conference. The noble thing this year was Matt‘s presence there, being one of the keynote speakers presenting on Sunday.
Being used to Matt’s Q&A sessions at WordCamps (leaving aside the State of the Word talks for a minute), i was quite amused by his talk at the Joomla event.
I would advise everyone who is even remotely related to WordPress – or even startups, business, freelance – to spend an hour and watch this talk carefully. Matt explained in details his journey to building WordPress, from his school years up to this very moment now, covering numerous adventures on the way.
I personally learned quite a few things about the WordPress project, Automattic, the Foundation, some history, adventurous practices and decisions.
