Shawn Hesketh

Shawn has filled a gaping hole in the WP tutorial world. That is, tutorials for folks who’ve never used WP before and wouldn’t know a post from a page, or category from a tag.

The tutorials at are well structured, thorough and at a good steady pace.

Designer/developers can now direct their clients to Shawn’s WP101 site and let his excellent tutorials teach them how to use WP.

For us designer/devs who suck at training – it’s a godsend!

Shawn’s a legend and should be knighted for services to the WP community!
