Discussing the WPShout Pro Community on the WP Tavern Podcast
The three of us (Alex, David, and Fred) had the pleasure of being on last week’s WP Tavern podcast. We discussed what we’ve learned about teaching and learning WordPress development, and why we believe the WPShout Pro Community solves learning challenges that nothing else quite addresses.
