Is your growth plan working?

Hello, and welcome to WPSessions! My name is Brian Richards, and when I started WPSessions in 2013 I found myself struggling with three basic questions:

  1. Where do I turn to learn about web development?
  2. Which resources have been the most instrumental to my growth?
  3. What am I doing to sharpen my skills and stay ahead of the curve?

Maybe you've asked yourself these same questions and came to the same conclusion I did: doing this alone isn't working.

With tech, and the web in particular, advancing in so many different directions it is oftentimes hard to know what to learn or where to learn it. That is, at least it used to be…

WPSessions works for you.

Every month WPSessions is at work on your behalf curating the foremost experts to train you in WordPress-related topics. Our live broadcasts provide all attendees an opportunity to ask questions to the experts and fellow community members. Recordings of each event are made available for replay immediately after the live sessions have concluded.

As a member you can:

  • Take deep dives into different WordPress topics and learn them better than ever before.
  • Download all of the content and watch it offline – forever.
  • Help direct what topics we focus on next and who we invite to speak.
  • Sharpen your skills and stay ahead of the curve.
