What's the word on WordPress...let's dive in!
Tara Maxwell (VP of Production @ Smashing Boxes) will be joining efforts with Bonnie Cook (Designer @ Smashing Boxes) to talk about how to use and enhance WordPress from both a development and design perspective.
We will cover topics like:
• Why even use WordPress? (SEO, Ease of Content Creation, etc)
• Basics of WordPress development and tech stack
• Benefits of hosting on WP Engine (multiple environments like Dev and Staging)
• A Few Plugins to note (we may scatter these throughout dev and design talk)
• Why UX Matters for WordPress devs and designers
