Hi! I’m Joe Casabona, a Front End Developer, Instructor, & Public Speaker. When I’m not writing code, I’m teaching people how to build things with and for WordPress. You can find my courses over at WP in One Month. I also host a weekly podcast called How I Built It, where I interview product developers and business owners about how they create. In addition to the profession stuff, I love Star Wars, Disney, smoking cigars, and playing the drums.
Our courses provide you with the necessary skills to build specific industry sites, develop great content, and use popular tools. Now that you know how to use WordPress, it's time to go Beyond the Basics.
