2016 WPCampus Survey

Duration: 1:06:23

In May 2016, WPCampus organized a groundbreaking survey of educational institutions asking how they’re using WordPress. We’ll be discussing the results with Shane Pearlman of Modern Tribe, who took the lead organizing and conducting that survey.

This episode features WPCampus members Brian DeConinck, Jen McFarland, and Shane Pearlman.

Brian DeConinck

I build custom themes and plugins for NC State University's Office of Information Technology, and I help maintain campus WordPress environments and advise clients on content best practices. I'm always excited to talk about universal design, accessibility, usability, and designing with compassion and empathy. I host the WPCampus Podcast, where I get to talk about all those things and more!

Beyond services, we are committed to open source and our plugins are pushing five million downloads. The events calendar has evolved into a multi-million dollar freemium plugin business.
