About This Class

Join Shopify Expert and agency owner Kurt Elster to learn how to setup, design, build, and customise a Shopify ecommerce store.

Intended for web designers and developers, this course is a primer on the complete Shopify ecosystem, with a focus on how to get started with theme modification, a stepping stone to complete custom development. Whether you want to sell your own assets or add a new line of services to your existing web design business, this class will equip you with all the skills needed to get started with the Shopify commerce platform.

As a class project, you'll launch your first Shopify development store with a basic customizable theme, then modify that theme with a series of simple changes — all addressing the most common requests from real-world clients.

Great overview of how Shopify themes work.
Clear, only basics, perfect for first introduction. Could be shorter when editing out 'dead moments', but overall still only 3 hours.
This is a great introduction to not only learning how to set up a Shopify theme, but how to apply changes and make customizations to theme templates by learning the basics of the Liquid code Shopify language.
