A little about me…
Hey there! My name is Frank Corso and it is a pleasure to meet you. Over the years, I have worked on a variety of different projects and businesses from many different industries. It all started with this:
This was “A Game Of Hockey”. Back in 2009, I was dabbling in some programming when Xbox came out with “Xbox Live Indie Games”. I decided to give it a try and made this simple game.
I went on to create a few slightly bigger games but decided to focus on something new I was playing with: WordPress.
After a few years of different brands and projects, I finally started a new company with bigger ambitions called My Local Webstop. This was my first web development agency as was the home to my biggest accomplishment: Quiz Master Next.
This product eventually became Quiz And Survey Master. This WordPress plugin was used on almost 20,000 websites to create over 60,000 quizzes and surveys across the internet. After growing it from 0 to 20,000 websites, I sold this plugin in early 2019.
After selling Quiz And Survey Master, I began to focus my time and efforts on one of my newer software products, SiteAlert. This product included both a free WordPress plugin and a SAAS offering to allow people to ensure their WordPress sites were secure and performing well. Over a couple of years, I grew this plugin to be used on 10,000 websites and it received over 275 5-star reviews. I sold this business in early 2021.
After selling SiteAlert, I joined a data startup, Podchaser, as their Head of Engineering where I hired and managed a team of 10+ developers.
Over the years, I have worked on a few other interesting projects. I was the founding lead organizer of a WordPress-focused conference (WordCamp Jacksonville). I co-organized two local meetups for almost 5 years. Lastly, I have taught a course at the University of Florida for several semesters.
Of course, as fun as all of my professional work has been, my greatest achievement is raising my awesome daughter, Arwen.
