About This Class

Join Shopify Expert and founder of Disco Gavin Ballard to see how to take your Shopify theme development skills to the next level.

Intended for web designers and developers with some prior Shopify experience, this course follows on from Kurt Elster's introductory course "Shopify Essentials for Web Designers". If you're just getting started with Shopify themes, it's recommended for you to take that course first (it's also available for free right here on Skillshare).

As a class project, you'll be asked to take an existing theme and revamp the Collections page, focusing on implementing features covered in the course. This includes Ajax functionality, advanced filtering and sorting, custom styling, and resolving potential performance issues.

The code from the screencasts can be found in the GitHub repository here.
