This class was quick, interesting, clear, and very useful. The step-by-step instruction allowed me to follow along easily. I used to write a blog but I didn't know many of the things Marian teaches. Highly recommended!

Marian Heddesheimer

WordPress Expert

I started computer programming back in 1988 when I created my first software with BASIC, Turbo Pascal and later in C++.

My primary domain in development was always database development, and I was a freelancer who created custom software for individual clients.

When the Internet came up with the World Wide Web and cheap web hosting for everybody, I switched over to Web-Development, which I started by learning PHP. I did some custom web software for my clients, using PHP as scripting language and MySQL as database software.

In 2010 I started using WordPress as blogging and content management platform and specialized in creating and modifying themes and plugins for this software.

Currently, I'm working as a freelancer, using job platforms like UpWork and codeable to find new projects with international clients.

I also write eBooks about WordPress and produce instructional videos that I offer on youTube, SkillShare and Udemy.
