I’ve been explaining what is important when considering quality traits that are keys to quality wordpress development and this recent read really struck a chord.
If you’re even slightly intrigued by the WordPress Community, its platform and those that live and breathe it like we do…make sure to hop on over to this post titled 7 Things WordPress Developers do Right by blog Things That Matter Most.
