My name is Carolina Nymark. I am a developer and WordPress theme nerd from Stockholm, Sweden.
On this site, I am offering a course and other materials about full site editing and block-based themes.
I have contributed to WordPress for the past 10 years, with countless of hours, 2000 code reviews, code contributions and more. I am a team representative for the WordPress.org themes team and that is where my main focus is.
I helped develop the Twenty Twenty theme and have several free, accessibility-ready themes in the WordPress theme directory.
For 18 years, I was employed by a government agency (administration and customer service) and being a WordPress developer was something I did on my spare time.
My employer was not able to offer me working conditions during the virus outbreak that would be safe for my partner, and I am now unemployed.
I have been able to freelance a little bit, but I have found it difficult to compete on market places because while I have knowledge and experience of WordPress, I don’t yet have the necessary working experience in this field.
I had no plans to create a course about full site editing until a few weeks ago. And when I first started thinking about it, my first plan did not include a free version of the course.
But because this is my first course, and because full site editing is something that all theme authors need to start thinking about, I decided to give it away for free. Because I am not the only one in this situation, and I am not the worst off.
Your sponsorship would allow me to continue to contribute to WordPress and to continue to offer my courses and themes for free for the whole community.
I manage sponsorships via GitHub Sponsors.
I am also looking for a fun, well planned and remote internship or a part time, remote job where I can learn the ropes.
Why part time? I understand that this is a deal breaker for many, but having time to look after family, my health, and time to contribute to WordPress and the themes team is important to me.
