What is a Wordpress developer?

Colloquially, a Wordpress developer is simply someone who can build Websites with Wordpress, and support a Wordpress website, on a Web server, hosted somewhere on the internet. This means that a Wordpress developer will have a broad range of skills: some of which are associated with the Wordpress specifically (Site building, Plugin development, .. ) but will also be competent with managing the Web server, and DNS records etc. A good "Drupal developer" will be able to manage nearly all requests coming from a client, and will be able to advise how to move forward should specialised knowledge be needed.

Here are some of the tasks that any Wordpress developer should be able to manage:

  • Website Support & Maintenance for Wordpress Websites:
    • Applying Wordpress Security Updates
    • Taking Backups
    • Updating & Upgrading Wordpress
    • Plugin Development
    • Theme Development
    • Managing Content
    • Managing Deployment
    • Search Engine Optimisation
    • Improving Performance
    • Improving Security
  • Web Server Support for Drupal Websites:
    • Managing Linux Web Servers
    • Managing Web / Database Caches
    • Managing Domain Name & Email records
