WCEU 2014 Speakers: Andrew Nacin

We are happy to welcome one of the lead developers of WordPress Andrew Nacin to WordCamp Europe 2014.

Andrew Nacin works for WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg at Audrey Capital, where he is primarily tasked with working on WordPress core and keeping the lights on at WordPress.org.

He is a lead developer of WordPress, wrangling contributions, spearheading initiatives, advising new development, and squashing bugs. He led some of the last major WordPress releases and is also a member of the core security team.

Just as many PHP core developers have with PHP, he and WordPress have a love-hate relationship. If he thought it was perfect, he would find another job. He feels strongly about the core philosophies of WordPress, among them “decisions, not options” — software should be opinionated in lieu of burdening the user with too many options.

He resides in downtown Washington, D.C., with his wife. You can follow him on Twitter at @nacin.

If you haven’t already, read this piece on The qualities of a great WordPress contributor he wrote. Check it out, get excited and join us for WCEU ’14 Contributor Day in Sofia.
