Suzette will be presenting WordPress Wizardry Without Code on Friday
in the Foundation Friday 201 track

Interview:

Why do you use WordPress?
I use WordPress because it makes me look like a genius!

What would you say to convince someone to attend a WordCamp?
It will change your life and how you learn new information and interact with people and it’s only $40! Plus you get learned, fed, clothed, and drunk all inclusive!

What is your favorite WordPress project you have worked on recently?
I had to demo WordPress 3.9 the night that it came out. The presentation went smashingly and claughter and cheers came as I demonstrated the inline image uploading and editing features. I also enjoyed researching how to use Sass to edit themes for WordPress.

Do you have any advice for someone looking to start or grow a WordPress based business?
Keep raising your prices higher and often as you become busier and busier! Do it! Hire help or refer quality leads.

What is your favorite WordPress-related resource?
So many to pick from, but I would have to say as a developer, my favorite is CSS-Tricks.com, which is run by the awesome Chris Coyier.

Tell us something awesome about yourself that is not WordPress related
I co-curated a month-long charity lowbrow art show at Thinkspace for Equality California featuring over 50 different artists and raising over $3,500 for EQCA.
