基本编码技能应用

One of the greatest WP traits is that it requires very little to no coding skills.However,很自然,过了一段时间,你将开始对这些可能性产生兴趣。The most common scenarios when this first encounter will happen are usually related to some plug-in issues or theme modifying.由于wp论坛和类似的资源,you can find the solution to many simpler problems and have your first experience with coding right there.While you can create a fully functional WordPress website without touching the code,实际上,掌握代码选项可以让您获得更多的可能性和对项目的更多控制。

Victoria Kushner,博客编辑:弗雷米克,told about her skills development:

“当我刚开始写博客的时候,我对插件知之甚少,widgets,主题定制,etc.Thank God,WordPress allowed me to learn all these in an effortless way.Now I feel more confident managing the whole blogging machine for my company.我可以轻松地为我的博客添加新功能或提高用户参与度。”

Managing project scope

大多数年轻开发人员面临的问题是预测项目范围,cost and time of development.Not getting this right can lead to losing the client's trust,超出预算,最终会赔钱。WordPressbeing that it is fairly simple,will help you manage this one on a smaller scale.

比尔·埃里克森,a professional WP developer,when asked about this,had this to say:

“简短的答案是:在不存在问题的地方,保持项目足够简单。我需要最终的设计和描述所有功能的范围文档(我写的)。如果请求不在其中之一,it's outside of scope and extra.I'll usually throw simple things in,但我尽量清楚,这样一旦他们走得太远,我就可以保留画线的权利。”

Web design skills

使用WordPress并不只是为了后端。使用WordPress让网站站起来,虽然看起来很简单,需要对网页设计的当前标准和趋势有一定的了解,了解基于网站功能的设计,以及适应设计的能力,因此对于每个降落在设计上的人来说,设计是合乎逻辑和直观的。虽然整个过程非常类似于一个拼图游戏(用不同的元素来创造一个整体)。比较经验丰富的专业人士所做的事情和新手所做的事情时有很大的不同。

史蒂文·克鲁格,网络可用性专家,probably said it best:

问题是没有简单的“对”answers for most Web design questions (at least not for the important ones).What works is good,integrated design that fills a need—carefully thought out,well executed,并进行了测试。

电子商务网站最强调的是你的前端设计方式,因为,如果做对了,它可以降低弹跳率,增加转换率和其他很多东西。但是,you need experience in order to be able to recognize the more important factors and get them right!

从博客平台学习博客

尽管wp不仅仅是一个博客平台,你仍然需要欣赏它的根。If you attempt to make money using WordPress,your first couple of projects are bound to be simple blogs that are going to be pretty easy to set up.仍然,博客圈是一个非常重要的方面,and if you aspire to become a well-recognized IT professional,那么你就需要成为其中的一部分。

Jamie Forshey,教学技术教练Bellwood Antis学区规定的:

"Knowing how to utilize tools like WordPress allows users to share ideas and content with others via a blog and/or web site.在我们所生活的数字时代,通过在线展示与全球观众建立联系和合作,以及建立一个个人学习网络是必要的技能,especially for students preparing for a career as an IT specialist."

这是一件你一开始不需要花费大量时间去做的事情,但是,沿着这条路走,the importance of it will become a bit more obvious.An online presence creates new learning opportunities as well as helps you establish yourself as an expert in a certain field.There is no room for anonymity in the IT sector,you need to be there and you need to be active.

总体而言,WordPress is worth studying,不管你的学位或计划专业是什么。It provides many invaluable skills,which can definitely raise your prestige as an all-around professional.So,keep on mastering WordPress!
