Developing websites is hardAnd all the different languages and technologies out there make it harder. I want to make websites, but I cant understand the technical stuff! Even WordPress is hard for me! That’s where I am here to help.

 

The WordPress Bootcamp is the swiss army knife of WordPress courses. We learn every major WordPress plugin on the market, including:

 

  • SEO / Yoast SEO

     

  • 4 Page Builders

     

  • BuddyPress

     

  • bbPress

     

  • Jetpack & Aksimet Anti Spam

     

  • WooCommerce & eCommerce Integration with WordPress                        

  • Caching

     

  • And so much more!

     

But I dont want to sit through all the boring content! How am I supposed to sit through 20+ hours of watching someone use WordPressWith this course, you dont have to. Instead of boring theory, we learn how to use the massive list of plugins above while building real-world production websites that can be used on a real site. It may be a WordPress website, but it will look like a real production website.

WordPress is a huge tool. And I mean huge. There is such a wide variety of plugins, themes,  and tools- and all of them work with WordPress! How am I supposed to remember that information? WordPress is a big topic, and there is lots of cover. This curriculum is based around building websites so that you can learn and build WordPress websites at the same time, allowing your WordPress knowledge to sink in like a sponge.

We built websites with WordPress such as:

 

  • Blogs from Beginner to Advanced

  • One-Page Startup Websites

  • WooCommerce & eCommerce Websites

  • Portfolio Websites

  • Social Media Networks

  • And more!

Whether you want to put the 10 websites you create on a portfolio, or just get some practice with WordPresswhen a client comes asking for a WordPress or WooCommerce developer, you will have the proof to blow them away.

 

Anything they throw at you, you will be ready. SEO, WooCommerce, Caching- You name it, you will have the skills to handle it.

 

With 20+ hours of content, 150 quiz questions, and a final exam – This is the only course you will ever need to become a WordPress Developer.

So, are you ready to learn WordPress development?
