What's WPblab?

WPblab has evolved over time from a question and answer show to a WordPress-focused interview show to our new goals in 2017. This is why we love tech so much. It moves, breathes, evolves. WPblab evolves with it.

Jason Tucker is an IT Director and WordPress Web Developer and Bridget Willard is a self-proclaimed Twitter Nerd. They both love WordPress and its diverse community. Please join us Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m. Pacific. No matter the topic, we plan to have fun, educate, and, of course, build community.
