Are you ready to take your WordPress knowledge to the next level? In this simple to understand, one-hour course, you'll learn how to customize your WordPress website with your very own custom theme! We'll also go over how to package your theme and prepare it for upload to your clients or to sites like ThemeForest.
This class is designed for beginner programmers, including those with no logic programming (PHP, Ruby, Python, etc.) experience. Experience in basic HTML/CSS is highly recommended. Some basic logic programming will be used including variables and loops, but the code explained is very specific to WordPress itself. You'll be given examples to take home with you of the code used during class.
