This past week on Episode 1 of the SDM Interview Show Rob Cairns talked with Jeff Brown about resources and skills needed to learn WordPress. It was an amazing engaging discussion. Rob thought he would share below a few resources on how you can improve your WordPress skills. Here they are:

  1. WordPress for Dummies by Lisa Sabin-Wilson – This is the only dummies book our CEO will ever recommend.  The book is well organized and a great WordPress resource.
  2. WordPress Plugins A to Z – This podcast is the best resource for identifying new plugins and what works and what does not work. If you are developing a new website this podcast is a must listen to.
  3. Twitter – Follow the hashtag #WordPress. A lot of great discussions happens on Twitter.
  4. Bob Dunn’s Website – Bob Dunn is a great resource and his blog is well worth reading. He also does several podcasts and links are available to them on his website.
  5. WP Beginner – This website has many great articles to help you with WordPress.
  6. Word Camp Central – Check out a WordCamp near you. Meet some people and learn a little.
  7. Meetup.com – Check out your area to see if there is a WordPress Meetup group.
