Are you an end-user, or a designer/programmer/consultant for WordPress?

I am a senior freelance WordPress full stack developer.

What do you mainly use WordPress for? (eg. blogging, personal website, professional or corporate website, etc.)

I specialize in creating highly performant scalable, accessible and SEO friendly code (plugins and themes) for large WordPress sites that are often multi-site, multi-language, VIP and/or e-commerce.

How much experience do you currently have with WordPress?

I discovered WordPress in 2006 when asked to explore the use of collaborative tools internally for a multinational corporation, setting up a 200+ multi-blog site using WPMU on IIS7. As part of this project, I created the Author Avatars plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/author-avatars/ , which now has 10,000+ active installs. From this point on, the community, the flexibility and the velocity of WordPress has made it my platform of choice. I have made core commits in 3.9, 4.0, 4.2, 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6 and continue to support a growing list of plugins https://profiles.wordpress.org/pbearne/#content-plugins and the wider WordPress community.

What are you hoping to get from The Toronto WordPress Meetup Group?

Friends, contacts and new learning. I make a good living through WordPress and also seek to give back to and help grow the community.
