Interview with Nick Ciske

What inspired or motivated you to give this talk at WordCamp?

I often see developers using lengthy PHP workarounds when a core function exists to make their lives easier, they just don’t know where to find it. I’d like to change that!

Do you have any advice or words of encouragement for those who are thinking about getting involved in the WordPress community?

Release (or adopt) a plugin — even a small one. You learn a lot when other people start using your code in ways you never imagined!

If you could make one improvement to WordPress today, what would it be?

Bump the minimum PHP version to 5.6.

Who do you most admire and why?

My wife — I could never do what she does with as much grace or patience.

What’s your favorite quote from a book or movie?

“The things you used to own, now they own you.”
― Fight Club
