Cory and David discuss Andrea Middleton’s departure, the Classic Editor’s persistence, Frontity’s acquisition, and Jonathan Wold joining Post Status.
New hires to Post Status and an acquihire for Automattic.
In this episode, David and Cory talk about recent news from all corners of the WordPress community. First, they share how they will miss Andrea Middleton — who is taking a great new opportunity at Reddit after 10 years of full-time work on the WordPress open source project. Next, they talk about why keeping the Classic Editor plugin officially supported makes sense, and how the Frontity acquisition by Automattic can be viewed as an acquihire to advance Gutenberg‘s development.
Also covered in this episode: Cory and David welcome Jonathan Wold to the Post Status team.
