Last Saturday I attended the WordPress Toronto monthly meetup at the Ryerson DMZ hosted by WPUniversity, who launched that day. I’ve been looking forward to a product like this for a long time now and I can’t wait to start using it, contributing to it and getting my clients on it.
WPUniversity is a unique plugin that you install to help you with various tasks in WordPress. It doesn’t just show you, it guides you through your own installation of WordPress to help you, as if you had an expert sitting next to you saying, “Now click here, and type this…”
What does this do for someone like me? Won’t I lose work over this? No. As a matter of fact, I will be able to get to more clients because I won’t have to answer every question that clients might have that are basic and similar in nature. Similarly, my clients will be able to look up the help for themselves and practice it as much as they like. Then, if they still have problems, they can call upon me. I can also adjust my training when I know what pieces I might be missing from my own offering.
They’re just getting started and we got the preview last week. If you want this great product, you’ll have to wait until about September, but it will be worth it.
You honestly have to see it for yourself:
In the meantime, make sure you Follow Friday this amazing team, WPUniversity (@WPUni) out of the Ryerson DMZ and catch them most likely at WordCamp Hamilton, coming on June 23, 2013. More on that next week. Until then, enjoy and welcome back to Follow Friday!
