Mostly, networking. I have friends in the area - now, I would like to develop some business contacts. Hoping I can help designers with their code, coders with their design and everyone with copy, video and more.
Started with GoLive in 1998; when Adobe discontinued it and added Dreamweaver in 2007, I took that as my cue to learn actual markup. In 2010 I realized that not being able to design for WordPress was a deficiency I needed to fix - so I did, and I gradually fell in love with the platform. Now, at any given time, I might have 11 or 12 sites running, and ALL of them are WordPress. Most are on Genesis. And only a few really look like that's true.
I don't think that for me it's a matter of coolest new tech - it's what I need to take the time to start using regularly. Like SASS, and Github repositories. And some sort of approach to responsive images. Plus, I hear the guys on the radio talking about polyfills in every show - as part of the grids/floats/flexbox/layout discussions? Or something else entirely? Dunno. Better find out, or I'll still be using floats when I'm 80.
Veteran marketing communicator (design AND copy) turned web designer/developer and video producer. Was - and am still - active in the St. Louis WordPress community and an organizer of our WordCamps, where I've spoken on web type and page layout.
