As the Co-founder of MainWP, I have to confess that I did not code or design the plugin. The truth is, I am a hack coder, and my eye for design is iffy at best.
I am great at solving problems and then effectively communicating the solution to the coders and designers.
Honestly, I used to be ashamed to admit I didn’t code or design but “only” laid down the path for others to complete the task.
What I do can be just as difficult as coding and designing.
Complex projects with many moving parts need someone who can coordinate and communicate with all the stakeholders: coders, designers, support, and, ultimately, the customer.
It can even be argued that the person who can tie them all together into one cohesive unit, all working towards the betterment of the software, may be the most valuable part.
So now I stand tall – I can’t code, I can’t design, but if you need someone to put it all together, then I’m your guy.
