Description

This class is not a beginner level.

Here is what you need to know when you want to learn WordPress plugin development.

1) You should have a basic understanding of HTML

2) You should have a fair knowledge about CSS

3) You should know how to program in PHP

4) You should have a basic knowledge of JavaScript and jQuery

In this class, I will show most of the examples running in my local environment.

The course will not teach, how you can set up a development system for WordPress, but you can find useful resources, where you can learn it.

For example, my fellow teacher Laurence Svekis has an excellent class named "Setup XAMPP run a local server web development."

I recommend watching his class if you want to learn how to setup a local web server, where you can install and run WordPress for local development.

He is also teaching a class named "Quick Learning PHP for Beginners," so if you are not a PHP programmer yet, you can start there.

You should also be familiar using a code editor.

I am using sublime text, but you can use any code editor that you are familiar with, for example, Notepad++, Atom, Coda, or Brackets.

I also assume that you know what WordPress is and how to work with it as a regular user or webmaster.

If you need basic knowledge about this, check out my class series here on Udemy that is named "Zero to Hero Webmaster."

These classes will teach you how to set up WordPress and how to use it as a professional website for your business.

This class is for developers, who wants to learn to build WordPress plugins from scratch.

WordPress Developer

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
