Learning WordPress SucksHave you been using WordPress long enough that you want to look under the hood? Make some tweaks? Own your site like a boss?Good luck!While there are a ton of resources out there that provide tutorials, examples, and other great information, wading through it all can be like a space battle. They come at you from all directions, each with it's own path, and each gunning for you (and perhaps your money).In this talk, I'll share a selection of resources that are available. And I'll suggest a plan to maximize your results and minimize your running around in circles. Because the best strategy in a space battle is to stay on target!This session is intended for those WordPress users without formal developer education but are curious about development and not afraid of code. Or something like that. :-)P.S. for the organizers… I'm not going to endorse any specific training or vendor. I would like to share my experience with the one's I've used though.
