Learning resources for the Web & WordPress

“Where do I start?”, “Where do I go next?”
Questions we often hear at meetups, WordCamps or people passing/mailing/tweeting by.

This blogpost is an attempt to provide a starting point, or to help you find the ‘next step’ or the ‘next guide’. The list contains handy learning resources and tips for both web in general and more specific for WordPress.

A thank you to Tom Hermans, Frank Goossens, Veerle Verbert, Jeroen Rotty, Pascal Casier and many others for adding tips!

Looking for motivation?

  • propose a lightning talk (or longer) at your meetup group: pick a topic, learn & experiment and go out to share your newly gathered knowledge! (pick a reasonable date & then you have a deadline so you don’t procrastinate 😉
  • find a partner or mentor (ask around at your meetup group if anyone is interested)
