Aside from the basics (HTML, CSS, and WordPress itself) my skills are based on years of experience. Perhaps the best description of my skills is to see them in action … predominantly for the last two years I have been solely responsible for managing the support forums at WordPress for NextGEN Gallery. Have a look at the @photocrati profile and see all of the replies signed as “- Cais.” That would be me.
Of course you can also see my own WordPress profile under @cais as well where you will find WordPress repository hosted themes (6), plugins (18) and references to the various teams I work with.
