In this episode of Commerce Minded

He’s one of the best Craft developers out there, a prolific blogger, and a podcast host, but how did Andrew Welch get to where he is today?

Andrew’s hunger for learning began early when he started his own software company as a teenager, and it’s that same desire to learn that drove him to explore new interests and ultimately dive into the world of web development years later.

Tune in to learn how Andrew’s curiosity and willingness to teach others has helped him become an industry leader.

Key takeaways

  • Before he was a web developer, Andrew designed fonts, owned a software company, and went to school for photojournalism.
  • Andrew discovered early on the value of teaching--you have to do deep dives and become well-versed in the subject first.
  • The world of web development is changing. Don’t be intimidated by Composer for Craft 3, because there’s a big payoff in using it, and the Craft team is there to guide you through any issues.
