    Paul Gibbs interviewed by Troy Dean from WP Elevation 

    A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Troy Dean from WP Elevation for their podcast, and the interview (video and a transcript) has just been published. Watch the interview here, and let me know what you think!

    Troy is a great guy and is  the best interviewer/podcast host/all-round good guy involved in the WordPress community at the moment, so it was pretty exciting to get the chance to sit down with him and talk about WordPress and BuddyPress, and how I got started with web development, and much more.

    If you want to see more WP Elevation podcasts, be sure to check out the archives on the site or on iTunes. If you’re looking for recommendations, I particularly enjoyed the recent interviews with Tom Willmot & Noel Tock (of Human Made fame), and Mike Little (WordPress co-founder).

    I’m joining Automattic 

    I’ve been very fortunate to have worked at The Telegraph since April 2011; it was my first “real” development job, and as I said in an email to my (ex-)colleagues earlier today, I’ve enjoyed my time there and I’m very proud of what we were able to accomplish together. However, I’m after a new challenge, and so I’m moving on.

    I’m extremely pleased to announce that I’ve joined Automattic as a Code Wrangler, joining their VIP team. I’m very excited to be working for such a great company, which is full of awesome and inspiring people, and I can’t wait to get started! :D

    I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy christmas and a great new year; 2013 is going to be awesome!

      I hope you’ll still have the time and inclination to pursue your other projects, I had a lot of fun playing around with your Achievements beta this afternoon.
