Powerful Insight into Community and WordCamp on Hallway Track

Devin Walker talks about community, plugin development, and more on Hallway Track

One of the best parts of a WordCamp is the serendipitous moments and conversations you have with people on your way to and fro. This popular way of non-networking networking has been unofficially called the “hallway track.”

Jason Tucker and Sé Reed decided to start interviewing people in as part of WPwatercooler in hallway of WordCamp. Of course, they named the show “Hallway Track.”

Devin Walker, our founder and lead developer, talked to Hallway Track about how he made his journey from Joomla to WordPress.

He also answered questions about how he found the WordPress Community. Though Devin used WordPress in agency work, he didn’t feel like part of a community.
