In February of 2016, I released a free plugin for Discourse. It seemed fairly harmless at the time, but that one plugin led to a couple conversations about doing freelance development work on top of Discourse. I didn’t think much about it. I was already doing heavy WordPress development and this was a natural extension of that.
But those two projects led to conversations with other clients seeking help with Discourse. And those led to even more conversations. It didn’t take long before I realized there’s a real need for custom Discourse development for those on self-hosted instances and extensive theming for Discourse hosted customers. So I began focusing on Discourse in August of 2016.
Since making that commitment, I’ve segmented off the Discourse aspect of my business under the name ProCourse and brought on a team of other developers to help wrap up as many projects as we can each week. Under the umbrella of ProCourse, we’ve done numerous Discourse and WordPress themes, plugins, and initial builds, but we’ve also become a resource for consulting and on-going projects. And thanks to the amazing Discourse community, it keeps growing.
So if you’re interested in doing one-off projects or need a long-term commitment, we’re here to help.
