very good webinar for beginners..really kudos to Kurt...
This teacher goes through how to create your own Template for Shopify in a very clear and concise way. He speaks in a very pleasant tone with just a hint of humor. Does not waste your time with extraneous meanderings, but, it direct and to the point. The quality of what and how he shares each and every topic... is a pleasant surprise. His presentation... actual raises the Bar on the product Shopify itself.
Kurt is a great instructor. I appreciate the pace of the overview, very informative and helpful.
