Become a WordPress Developer: Unlocking Power With Code
What Will I Learn?
Why code is the key to building whatever you can imagine with WordPress
The ability to write PHP to manipulate the data of a WordPress site
The skills, knowledge and vocabulary to work professionally as a WordPress developer
Basic WordPress knowledge (how to create a blog post, etcâ€¦)
A basic understanding of HTML (e.g. â€œpâ€ is for paragraph, â€œh1â€ is for headline, etcâ€¦)
No CSS knowledge required (although it helps to understand that CSS is used to add style & design to a page)
Unlock the full power of WordPress and go beyond â€œjust a blog platformâ€ by learning how to code completely custom WordPress powered sites.
Together we will build a website for a fictional university and along the way we will:
Install WordPress on your personal computer so you have a private playground copy of WordPress to practice and experiment with
Get introduced to the PHP language (this is what powers WordPress)
Set Up a New Theme (Youll learn how to convert any HTML template into a living breathing WordPress theme)
Create Custom Post Types and Custom Fields
Relate pieces of content with each other (e.g. a professor and a program)
Leverage the WP REST API
Let visitors sign up for a basic account on our site
Build a â€œMy Notesâ€ feature (user specific single page application with real-time CRUD actions)
Let users â€œlikeâ€ or â€œheartâ€ a professor (update the professors like count on-the-fly)
Deploy our website live up onto the web for the entire world to view
And much more!
This course may be brand new, but this isnt my first time teaching. Ive led training sessions for Fortune 500 companies and Ive already helped over 17,000 people on Udemy and received the following feedback:
â€œBrad definitely has some of the best techniques to embed the lesson into your mind. hands down these are the best tutorials I have had the opportunity to view.â€
â€œPresentation is concise without being tedious. you honestly feel that you have a thorough understanding of the subject.â€
â€œ.[Brad] explained the process. Not memorize this or that, he explained the process. If youre looking to take a course to understand the foundations of creating websites, look no further.â€
Become highly valuable and relevant to the companies that are hiring WordPress developers; in one convenient place alongside one instructor. If youre ready to begin coding custom websites Ill see you on the inside!
Who is the target audience?
Developers who want to use WordPress as a true Content Management System and not â€œjust a blog platform.â€
People who want to learn about the â€œREST APIâ€ which allows us to interact with WordPress data on-the-fly in realtime.
Anyone interested in custom post types, custom fields, and creating relationships between various content types.
