This week, we cover WeWork’s failed IPO and financial woes and how this likely led to Meetup’s introduction of an RSVP fee. We discuss why this decision doesn’t bode well for WeWork’s future. We also look at the WordPress 5.2.4 security release and what fixes are included. We discuss the planned release of PHP 7.4 on November 28 and how WordPress core is preparing for this update. We also get a little excited about our plans for WordCamp US November 1-2 and our party to celebrate the worldwide premiere of the open source film about the WordPress community: Open, The Community Code.
