But where can you learn WordPress development? There must be thousands of places where you could start. But this is not one of those post where you can see massive list of all possibilities. Otherwise post title would have been “100 ways to learn WordPress development”.
Instead I give you just one (and fun) recommendation. It’s called Themehybrid.com.
Themehybrid is maintained by Justin Tadlock where you can find cool Themes and Plugins. He also have Theme and Plugin review service. Not to mentioned that he is also one of the admins in Theme Review team. He knows WordPress.
You might be wondering why I only recommend Themehybrid in this article. The answer is simple, I can only speak from my experience.
I’m not sure when I joined Themehybrid, somewhere around 2010 perhaps. But it’s the most important reason why I’m still doing WordPress related stuff. I struggled to find words why Themehybrid has been so important for me. Justin himself explains it pretty well.
Really, it’s because we have a vibrant community of users and developers, standards-based philosophy, focus on education, and cool shit. Theme Hybrid also happens to be one of the oldest- and longest-running theme businesses around. Also, there’s plugins and themes; both are 100% $free to download.
For me education is the key point. That’s why I call Themehybrid as a WordPress School. Note that it’s not typical tutorial site where you can find WordPress related courses. It’s about community helping each others.
I’ll try to summarize how I learned WordPress Development in Themehybrid WordPress School.
This was not paid review of Themehybrid. I just wanted to share how important impact it has been for me. I recommend that you join Themehybrid community also if you want to learn WordPress Development. Or you are WordPress user and need help.
There is also Slack channel for members. Cheers!
