    Jean –
    I am a veteran (read “old”) software and firmware guy, primarily in the computer storage arena: hard disk drives, CD-ROM, DVD and Network Attached Storage development. I have been “playing” with HTML and JavaScript since 1990 when I first created my own consultant business. I tried to find contract projects for Web design/programming but, no one would hire me because I had little experience and no portfolio. For the past 15 years I have been doing primarily freelance software and firmware, and also doing a few Web sites for friends’ businesses (for free) on the side.
    I am well versed in HTML, JavaScript, CSS, JSON, AJAX, PHP, MySQL, and PYTHON. But, I only last year began working with WordPress and find it to be an excellent platform for Web site development.
    I am now getting burned out doing the same software for so many years and I am seriously considering switching my whole business to Web development. But, how do I find real customers that believe there is value in a good business Web site? As I see here on this post of yours, your new listing of WP dev’s has pretty high requirements for eligibility, and justly so. But how does a newb find new customers?

    Sorry for the long-winded post. And thanks for a great and informative blog; I if d it very helpful nearly every day.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff Safire

    Love this idea. One area I would like to see segregated out would be BuddyPress.

    Again, cool idea. Just one of the reasons I keep coming back.

    Cheers
