Lessons Learned by Stepping Outside WordPress Comfort Zone
I was an aging developer who wasn’t quite sure where I fit into the WordPress world anymore.
Over a weekend, I built a working custom blog system.
Without knowing it, everything I had learned through building on top of WordPress pushed me to become a more well-rounded PHP developer.
However, I also studied how other platforms worked from a pure user-experience perspective.
Instead of calling yourself a “WordPress developer,” think beyond that terminology.
