Interview with Brad Parbs

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you use WordPress:
I’m Brad Parbs, internet rockstar. I’m a designer, developer, plugin author, and core contributor. I use WordPress all of the time. Whether it’s building client sites, my own projects, WordPress is always the right solution.

What will you be speaking about?
I’m speaking on Responsive Design, a primer on it. We’ll cover what it is, why it’s important, how we got to this point, and how you can start using responsive design, even if you don’t know CSS or anything.

Who is your target audience?
Users, developers, designers. I think everyone can learn a little bit or a lot!

What do you hope the WordCampers will get out of your session?
I really want everyone to start seriously thinking about how to embrace Responsive Design, it’s something that is really moving the web forward.

What is your favorite WordPress Plugin?
If I don’t count the ones I have in the repo, which I of course love, I would have to say Posts2Posts, because I’ve used it a few times, and it is extremely powerful. It lets you map relationships between post types and you can do a lot.

Do you have a WP hero?
John James Jacoby is probably one of my favorite Automatticians. He’s taught me a lot, helped me out, and always has a great story to tell.

Pizza is a food group unto itself in Chicago… Where is your favorite place to get pizza?

This little pizza place in Dahlonega, Georgia called Gustavo’s. It’s awesome.

Tell your favorite WordCamp story!
Working with Mark Jaquith and John James Jacoby at WordCamp Grand Rapids. They helped me through core code and getting my first contribution into WordPress. It was awesome!!
