Presented by Al Caldarone & Stephanie Schechter • Project Management/Freelance Track

Ok, so you’ve found the perfect career as a freelancer, building WordPress themes. It’s creative, exciting, and could make you some serious money while offering you the flexibility to be your own boss. It also can be frustrating, overwhelming, and has a learning curve that never goes away.

Developers and Designers have their own passions and skill sets but then they go on their own and after a couple of projects full of self-inflicted frustration they soon realize there must be an easier way and it may be time to collaborate. Collaboration between designers and developers is not only a great way to relieve some of the burden, but also helps to improve creativity, enhance quality, and increase productivity by combining different perspectives.

This presentation will help you reach your goals of quickly building more innovative WordPress sites by discussing collaboration as well as other time saving techniques that can help in your development process.
