I started attending the Portland WordPress Meetup a few years ago as a way to make connections and improve my WordPress skills. However I quickly discovered simply attending meetings wasn’t helping my coding skills much. Then we had Lance Willett come and speak on breaking themes. The talk was excellent, and afterwards I made sure to introduce myself.
Lance was very gracious and offered me his contact information and told me to send him so code and he would be happy to review it.
I was excited!
I was terrified…
