Nowadays, anyone who is genuinely interested in learning a new skill or science can use the Internet to do it. There are tons of courses teaching you from quantum physics to Portuguese or WordPress. The Internet can’t replace the school, but it’s a reliable alternative for people lacking money and time.
WordPress experts should constantly stay updated with the latest news and techniques. Even the best students who graduated IT universities have to sharpen their WordPress skills after graduation. It’s true that the client work pays your bills, but you simply can’t ignore your self-preparation.
