WordPress developers: Today I’m opening sign ups to a newsletter I’ll be starting soon called Beyond WP.
It will be a resource that brings developer tools and ideas from outside the WordPress ecosystem to WordPress developers.
I’ve worked with WordPress for around ten years. I love it as a CMS. But I often feel like I push it to its limits. As a back-end developer who deals with complex data and builds applications, I’ve needed alternatives.
And I found the Laravel framework!
Learning Laravel and being immersed in its ecosystem – the tooling, the learning resources, the people in the community – has been hugely beneficial for my work and career. Including ongoing WordPress work.
And I want to bring those benefits to others who’ve not found these things yet.
Sure, I’m not the only person that spans WordPress and Laravel worlds. But I made a WordPress-to-Laravel course, and some videos about useful PHP tools. And I’ve come to see one of my roles as being a bridge between these communities.
Beyond WP gives some structure to this. To start with, it will be an occasional email (I can’t promise a schedule) with useful stuff from outside the WP bubble that I think will interest and inspire WordPress developers.
If people like it I may expand the format.
Join me in taking a step Beyond WP! It’s exciting and inspiring and fun.
