How do I become a WordPress developer?

A WordPress developer is a ‘full-stack’ developer which means they are capable of developing both the front and back end of a website.  This requires a range of technical expertise in software development and computer programming, which is why most professional WordPress developers complete a tertiary qualification.  These range from a BSc in Computer Science to a diploma or certificate in software development.  There are also many different WordPress courses, resources and tutorials on offer - via both online and in-person training.  However, a successful WordPress developer requires a high level of skills and knowledge and there is no substitute for practical experience in web development and web design.

What are the disadvantages of using WordPress?

WordPress users need to have sound technical skills in order to use this content management tool effectively.  There are a vast number of plugins available for customising a website and enhancing its design and functionality, but installing these can be time-consuming and frustrating if you don’t have the technical skills.  These plugins also require frequent updating and it can become quite costly if you end up paying for unnecessary plugins.

How do I practice WordPress?

How much does a WordPress website cost?
