Hello! Welcome to the WordPress development course. This is the most comprehensive and effective course on WordPress development around. This is the only course you'll ever need to learn WordPress development.
WordPress currently holds over 30% of the market share on the web. WordPress is an absolute dominant force and it's popularity continuously grows. One of the best things about WordPress is that it's easily extendable. There are thousands of plugins and themes available both free and premium.
In this course I will teach you how to create your very own plugins and themes. This course was designed for those who truly want to master WordPress inside and out. There is no stone left unturned. This course will help make you into one of the most competitive WordPress developers out there. You will be able to develop custom plugins and themes no matter how hard the task is.
You can expect high quality and fresh tutorials. This course uses the latest versions of software development including PHP (7.x), Twitter Bootstrap (3.x), MySQL/MariaDB (5.x) and, Vue.js (2.x) .
Here is an overview of what you can expect to learn.
In a nutshell, we'll explore the various WordPress APIs and how they should be used. The codex page is filled with examples and each page is quite lengthy. WordPress development doesn't have to be hard to learn. The biggest mistake most coding tutorials make is expecting someone to learn simply by imitating others' code. Real world situations are never exactly like the tutorial.
I believe the best way to learn is to understand how a tool works and what it does for you, look at examples, and then try it yourself. That's how this course is built, with the goal to help you both learn and understand WordPress.

Vue.js is the most developer friendly and flexible framework for building single page apps. Build components to separate your code and wire up your own custom routes for a better user experience. All this knowledge right at your fingertips!
