Designer vs Developer: Creators in WordPress

This talk will explore myths & preconceptions about roles.. When we push these boundaries, we can achieve greater things. If you understand what you’re trying to accomplish both technically and visually, you will have fantastic a outcome.

We’ll touch on “crossover”(golden unicorn) topics such as UI, UX, trusting instincts, user testing, wire framing, information architecture, front end structure, and form.

WordPress is a great place to put this into practice: as its a perfect environment for leaning php,css, but also its surrounding community support helps us achieve greatness.
