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.

To open up your own development store, complete your class project, and try out the Shopify platform for yourself sign up for the free Shopify Partner Program.

Only problem I have with this series of videos is that I wish it was for free. It's the best single-source for all a person needs to learn Shopify. It's great and I plan to go back to it to create my own training manual so I don't forget all the helpful lessons, helping my team and my client. Shopify is an amazing platform.
Very good content and deep explanation
Thanks very much Kurt, this was so helpful for people who know how to develop themes but know nothing about the shopify organisation and architecture. You explain yourself very clearly and you gave nice ressources like Timber and shopify cheat sheet. Now, i just nedd to put myself more deeply in the syntaxe documentation to more understanding about filter, objects and handle and i'll start to make my first theme !
