Interview with Zac Gordon

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

Ever since Matt Mullenweg told the community to learn JavaScript Deeply, I have been dedicating myself to teaching JavaScript Deeply to the WordPress Community. This started with an online Master Course and has now evolved to trying to teach more people in person via Workshops at WordCamps.

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

Go to your local WordCamp or WordPress Meetup Group. People are super friendly and knowledgable and you’ll build up a nice little network pretty quick.

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

I feel there is some not so great politics involved with the decision making process of what JS framework to include in WordPress Core.

Who do you most admire and why?

Jesus. Pure love baby. Very inspirational πŸ™‚ St. Francis is another inspiration for me. Love me some animals πŸ™‚ Ghandi, Mother Theresa… these are the types of folks I look to for inspiration and have a lot of admiration for.

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

“Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.”

~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles
