Today I’m excited to have on stage Daniele Scasciafratte, the Open Source Multiversal Guy. Daniele is involved all over the places: he’s a WordPress core contributor, a Mozilla contributor, and the author of the book “Contribute to open source: the right way”.

In this episode, we start from GlotDict, a browser extension Daniele wrote to support WordPress translators. But that’s just the starting point! We’ll touch on what is means to be a WordPress core contributor, how Mozilla is different from WordPress and the love/hate relationship we all have with PHP.

Daniele also wrote an Open Source book: “Contribute to open source: the right way”. This book is like a survival guide for any Open Source newcomer. We’ll talk about how the book came to be and what are the main takeaways from it.

Enjoy the show 👨‍🍳
