Take The Next Step In Your WordPress Career: Announcing the WPShout Pro Community
Does any of this sound familiar in your WordPress work?
- “I don’t think I can learn all this.”
- “Wait, how do I even ask this question?”
- “Everything I read confuses me more—I can’t find the ends of the yarn ball.”
- “I’m constantly worried that something will break and I won’t know where to turn to get it fixed.”
- “I want to take on bigger projects, but I can’t invest the time to learn how.”
- “I wish I could just show this bug to someone who knew how to fix it.”
- “My clients are counting on me, and I’m stuck.”
Almost all WordPress developers and development learners feel these things far too often. The job draws on a huge body of knowledge, and it’s full of technical potholes where we can get stuck with no clue how to proceed. Being stuck is bewildering, draining, and discouraging. What can we do about it?
Developers need community.
Over nearly a decade of teaching WordPress development to many thousands of people, we’ve found a clear answer: community. As Fred wrote last week, people are the key ingredient in learning WordPress development.
There are so many things that only human connection can provide: everything from folk knowledge (“The problem is probably browser caching, so try changing your stylesheet version”), to in-depth debugging tailored to your specific needs, to emotional support, encouragement, and accountability.
In other words, community matters. As a WordPress developer or development learner, you simply must have a community of technical people who’ve got your back.
WPShout Pro Community, Assemble!
For much of this year, we’ve been hard at work organizing a community built around your WordPress learning: one that offers an efficient way of mastering WordPress development, getting answers on the practical issues and obstacles that crop up in your work (especially the scary “Uh oh, I’m stuck” ones), and continually growing your confidence and mastery as a WordPress developer.
It’s called the WPShout Pro Community, and we’re delighted to announce it today, with pre-sales opening next week.
From experience, we can tell you that direct, person-to-person knowledge sharing is the only way to fully learn WordPress development.
To work boldly and confidently, every WordPress developer needs two kinds of human connection:
- Expert access. Being able to ask somebody who knows, and who is excited to help you learn.
- Community. Learning and belonging among peers with similar, but distinct, strengths and learning edges.
The WPShout Pro Community offers both of these things, with direct, person-to-person mentorship from Fred, David, and other WordPress experts, a strong and vibrant peer support network, and awesome member benefits.
You’ll get the knowledge, support, and confidence you need to take your next steps in WordPress development—whether that’s handling the WordPress projects that your own business needs, launching yourself fully as a hireable (or even more hireable!) WordPress developer, or stepping up to take on more complex and lucrative client projects.
Do great work with WordPress.
The WPShout Pro Community is for people who want to great work with WordPress. You’ll never be stuck again—in your own learning, or in your projects for yourself or your clients.
We’d love to have you on board. We’re opening pre-sales next week, and will be in touch with some more details later this week.
