Interview with John Havlik

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

As with any topic I speak on, my motivation is sharing knowledge. In this case, I am sharing what I have learned over the course of a decade of maintaining a popular plugin. While it may not seem like it, a decade, especially in tech, is a long time.

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

The best advice I have for those thinking about getting involved in the WordPress community is to get involved in your local WordPress community. The easiest way to do this is to attend a local meetup. In the Twin Cities, we have a WordPress User Group that meets monthly.

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

“That’s the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you’re never wrong.” -Nick Naylor (Thank You for Smoking 2005)
