What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
Hands-down, the WordPress community. It’s a highly collaborative and welcoming environment, open to users of all skill levels, from complete beginners to seasoned developers. I’ve just returned from attending WordCamp US 2023, which was hosted in National Harbor, Maryland, and it felt more like a family reunion than a business conference.
One remarkable feature of the community is the abundant availability of educational resources. These range from beginner-friendly tutorials and video guides to complex developer documentation, most of which are free and easily accessible online. The community is also active in organizing amazing events, such as in-person WordCamps (super happy to see more of these popping back up) and Meetups. Such events provide invaluable opportunities for networking, skill-sharing, and staying updated on the latest trends and technologies in the WordPress ecosystem.
Overall, the WordPress community is more than just a user base; it’s a vibrant ecosystem where knowledge sharing is the norm, not the exception. This collective wisdom not only solves immediate issues but also contributes to the long-term growth and improvement of WordPress as a platform.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
Being a member of Post Status is another source of inspiration to highlight the amazing WordPress community. I love the curated newsletters that provide a one-stop source for all relevant news which helps save me time from sifting through multiple sources.
One of my favorite things about being a member is having a go-to resource to turn to any time there is an industry event happening, where I can easily ping other members of the WP ecosystem with a quick Slack message to easily coordinate meeting up a these events.
Post Status fosters the community aspect of WordPress. It’s a space where both new and seasoned WordPress professionals can ask questions, share their experiences, and contribute to discussions. This community makes the membership not just an informational resource but also a supportive hub for those committed to succeeding in the WordPress ecosystem.
