In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Topher DeRosia, founder of HeroPress. DeRosia provides an update on HeroPress and explains his new role creating WordPress training videos for WinningWP. Jacoby and I discussed the news of the week including, Press This removed in WordPress 4.9, Meta box support in Gutenberg, and WP-SpamShield removed from the directory. Near the end of the show, we discuss whether or not consultants, agencies, and site builders have been left out of the discussion and not factored into WordPress’ growth over the years.
