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 WP101.com 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!

Clay Griffiths

Clay revolutionized WordPress theme development with the Headway Theme Framework. This was, and still is, the only theme framework with a full real-time wysiwyg visual editor.

Although this makes it easy for anyone to design their own WordPress theme, Clay has made Headway a very powerful tool for developers as well, with an extensive array of hooks and intelligent declaration of CSS selectors.

Version 2.0 of Headway brings a huge array of enhancements and optimizations, all coded by this brilliant up and coming developer.

Headway and Clay are certainly ones to watch in the WP community.
