WordCamp presentation

I hope everyone enjoyed WordCamp as much as I did last Saturday (seems like Harry McCracken did).

At the camp, I gave a short presentation on the state of WordPress consulting. As WordPress continues to grow (doubling in downloads, pageviews, etc every few months), so does demand for paid design and development services around WordPress projects. Bottom line: we need more WP consultants! I’ve gotten several emails asking for a copy of the presentation, so here are my slides (slightly cleaned up).

#1 piece of feedback I received: the Automattic list of WordPress consultants is great, but getting very long – make it look more like the WP plugin and theme directories with tags and search so people can find consultants more easily.
