We’re thankful that Code Poet is a generous sponsor of WordCamps across North America. Because of their generous contribution, WordCamp Calgary will be an outstanding beginning to the greater development of the WordPress community here in our own city.
It’s an interesting notion, that code is poetry. As a non-tech myself, I can still appreciate the idea that the creation of code is on par with the creation of poetry. Interestingly, you’ll find those who agree with the notion, and those who disagree. Being someone who is not a coder (nor a poet), I have no dog in the fight and can’t even come to any defensible conclusion.
The folks at Code Poet, by their very adoption of the name, are probably on the believer side. So who are they? Code Poet is a learning resource that is dedicated to those who have a professional interest in WordPress and the development of the platform. From their site:
If you use WordPress to build things for other people, we want to make your life easier. No matter whether you freelance on a solo basis, lead a small web shop, make plugins in a dark closet, or crack the whip at a large design firm, our aim is to become your go-to source of information and resources to help you expand your WordPress skills and know-how. To make you better at what you do. To make it easier to make your living and look great doing it.
And how much does this cost? Notta thing. The resources that they offer, including a few e-books, are 100%, completely, unequivocally free of charge. How about them (free) apples?
