Best Tech Comics of 2019 (So Far) w/ CodeinWP … #Developers #Gutenberg #Conversions

Heya 👋

Long time no see. The last time we met to look at some cool comics was back in February. But this doesn’t mean we stopped working on comics altogether, far from it! In fact, we’ve been working harder than ever to ensure we can bring you the very best of the best every six months (or so). And, finally, we can officially welcome you to the first of our new best-of articles sharing our tech and WordPress comics.

In this batch, we will peer deeply into the webyss with our unique take on freelancing, exposure, and new currencies for creatives. Also, if you’re a fan of unethical life pro tips, then we have a brilliant method for using social proof to increase your conversions. All that and more to come in this roundup.

As usual, we have the brilliant João Santos to thank for these delightful panels. If you’d like to see more then the full comic archive is right here for your viewing pleasure!

Let’s get this edition going. Here are the top tech comics of 2019…so far:
