Earlier this year, I launched a closed-membership site, The First Version, aiming to help the aspiring WordPress developer.
Ultimately, the goal of the site was not to teach in-depth concepts such as PHP, object-oriented programming, or how to create themes or plugins.
Instead, it was meant to give budding developers a survey of the landscape of WordPress development and what tools, resources, and options they have at their disposal for starting on their journey.
Given the feedback, response, and membership, I think it went well. But it’s been closed for a few months. After an exercise in re-branding and a refocusing of the content, I’m relaunching the site for another few months.
