📈Grow by being a generalist freelancer 🤖How Blockchain will change WordPress


💪How designers/developers can be more than the sum of their parts
We have the lovely Sim Brody talking about how to up your game. Here's what he says: Do you design and develop websites or apps? Are you really proud that you have mastered two distinct disciplines? Or do you feel a bit insecure that neither your design or development skills match those of a ‘specialist’?

If you’re anything like me, you sometimes feel a bit of both and wonder how to pitch yourself for potential work or where your skills fit as part of a wider team.

I’m going to argue that we should not undervalue our skills, I’ll share some ideas about ways of working and make a plea to the wider web world to take us more seriously.

📈Blockchain and WordPress
We have David Lockie talking about the threats and opportunities to WordPress and what he's doing to get ahead of the curve.
