EP152 – Funding Open Source with Employment – How Plugins Are Really Built

As much as we like to think Open Source is all about giving and not getting, it isn’t a sustainable model. Peace, Love, and WordPress are great, but we still need to eat. So how are plugins really funded? We continue this series on funding open source with Russell Aaron. He has built and maintained several plugins on his own while an employee with a company. Russ says he supports his plugins "on his own dime," so you'll want to watch this episode for sure.


WPblab is a free form questions and answers show where viewers ask questions regarding WordPress, web hosting, social media integration, seo and other topics using text or video chat during the 1 hour show.

Hosts: Bridget Willard and Jason Tucker

Recorded Live - Friday 9:00pm Pacific

Hallway Track

"Hallway Track" is a term used to describe one of the unofficial tracks that occurs in the hallways before, during and after the sessions that occur at a WordCamp.

At WordCamp San Francisco 2013 Sé Reed and Jason Tucker were asked by the WordPress foundation to interview WordCamp attendees about their visit to WordCamp San Francisco. Since then Jason and Sé have been wanting to do this exact same thing at other WordCamps they have attended.
