5.    Examples of tasks:

  • Marketing needs to make customisations to their events in Beaver Builder to display an external link that they can change from the WordPress admin. You would add a custom field that shows on posts with something like Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) and then modify the Beaver Builder post feed module to display data from the ACF field on the frontend.
  • A website with hundreds of already created posts and pages is being redesigned. You would create page templates and widgets that account for dynamic content in order to restyle existing posts in a way that ensures nothing slips through the cracks while working within the confines of the already existing website or proactively identifying new technology that would better serve the redesign and decrease redesign time.
  • A designer you’re working with has finished their mock-up on a new site build with great UI/UX, but is unsure how to handle dynamic content within their design. You proactively suggest solutions and utilize responsive frontend best practices to ensure the website looks good on every browser and every device regardless of what the content looks like. We will use WordPress or HubSpot only so it is important to learn or be certified on these.

  • Internet connection
  • GIMP or Photoshop CS 5.x or any version supporting grouped layers
