WPWeekly Episode 354 – Pantheon Acquires StagingPilot

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I discuss Panethon’s acquisition of StagingPilot and why regression visual testing will likely become a standard feature across managed WordPress hosts if it’s not already. I rant about the size of text on so many sites being too large and having to shrink the site down to 80-90% in order for it to be manageable. We celebrate WordPress’ 16th birthday, discuss what happens to unloved patches, and GitHub’s Sponsors tool.

Stories Discussed:

Robots, Autopilot, and The Holy Grail of WebOps

WordPress Turns 16

Unloved Patches

New GitHub Sponsors Tool Draws Concerns from Open Source Community
