Learning WordPress development and how employers should look at candidates image/svg+xml

In this episode, Joe and Brian talk about how they learned WordPress development, how we think employers should look at skill hiring, and resources for learning.

It’s interesting to find out how others learned WordPress and web development. Like Joe and Brian, I have no formal education or training in web development, I trained as an engineer. I started learning web development (~20 years ago) because it piqued my interest and because I have a desire to know how things work. I think that’s probably the key to successful learning, you have to possess a genuine interest in the topic, and if you have that, everything else should follow naturally.
