138: An Infrastructure For Websites, with Pantheon’s Josh Koenig

November 13, 2015 at 2:00PM • 1 hour 1 minute • Wiki Entry

Josh Koenig, Co-Founder & Head of Product for Pantheon Website Management Platform, is Jeffrey Zeldman's guest in "An Infrastructure For Websites," Episode 138 of The Big Web Show ("Everything Web That Matters.")

Josh & Z discuss how the industry is evolving, how smartphones are driving web growth, integrating a pull request with a server, the connection of the web to real life (and the fact that it’s no longer a meaningful distinction), the idealism of the early web, why technology doesn't solve human problems, why truly revolutionary change occurs only when new technologies fade into the background, and a future in which the back-end grunt work of website creation is automated.

Josh Koenig is a Co-Founder and Head of Product for Pantheon, the website management platform for WordPress and Drupal. Prior to that he was a founder at Chapter Three, a web consultancy based in San Francisco. Josh has been involved in building the internet with Open Source and Free software for nearly two decades.
