Share The Podcast:

On todays podcast I’m going to be talking to Justin Busa, one of the founders of the popular Beaver Builder Page Builder plugin, but before that… a little bit of housekeeping.

We’d love for you to get involved with WP and UP and that that can be done in many ways:

  • You could talk about this podcast on social media, or talk about it on your own website
  • You could rate it on Apple podcasts
  • Or you you can subscribe to us on your favourite podcast player, which can be done by going by going to wpandup.org/podcast-feed

We’re also running an awareness campaign throughout October 2019 called #NeverGiveUp. The services that WP and UP provides are incredibly valuable. They are helping and supporting many people. We know that our community needs the support that we provide, but these services come at a cost. Thanks to the likes of Green Geeks and WPMU Dev, we’ve been able to get to where we are now, but if WP and UP is to continue, we need your help to finance it. You can head to wpandup.org/nevergiveup – to find out more about exactly what an organisation like WP and UP costs to maintain.

From there you might like to head over to wpandup.org/donate and donate something yourself. It really does not need to be a lot, just a few dollars will help us provide phone support or keep our online support community open.

So today is another episode which was recorded live in the halls of the Estrel Hotel in Berlin. This was the location of WordCamp Europe in 2019. You’re going to be hearing some background noise, as I found it nye on impossible to keep 3,000 WordPressers quiet!

Today I talk with Justin Busa. Justin is one of the founders of the Beaver Builder plugin. I’m sure that you’ve heard of it, but if you haven’t it’s a drag and drop interface for building out posts and pages quickly.

I’ve met Justin several times before and so the conversation flowed freely. We talked quite a lot about the plugin, but also about his company, how it’s grown, how it’s moved from an office to a distributed model recently, and how that actually works.

We also chat about Justin’s thoughts on the WordPress community and how he feels he fits into that, and the role that WP and UP is playing to keep that community healthy.
