Description

Did you know that 20-30%%%% of all websites on the Internet are powered by the Wordpress platform?

One of the reasons behind the success of Wordpress is it's flexibility, which allows developers to give superpowers to any website on a modular and easy manner.

In this course we'll cover the art and science of Wordpress Theme Development from scratch. By developing a Simple Template. we will cover everything you need to know to be able to create awesome themes that will run on the WordPress installation.

If you're using WordPress, you've probably spent an inordinately long period of time searching for a theme you like, only to feel like you've been looking at the same thing in a variety of colors. Maybe it's time you learned to create your own WordPress theme.

This course will help you learn to build your first, basic WordPress theme. We'll get under the hood and take a look at how a basic theme works (it's a mixture of HTML, CSS, and PHP) and create a basic, widgetized theme.
