WordPress enables you to create and maintain a website, even if you have no web design background. Whether you want to create a new website or blog, or manage an existing WordPress website, this class is for you. This course is geared for anyone, so you do not need prior experience with computer graphics or coding.
If you already know how to code webpages, you can use WordPress as a content management system (CMS) so website updates are easier and your clients (non-coders) can edit the content themselves! To control the look of the site you create themes, which is the focus of this class.
Learn front and back-end web development. Build the front-end of sites by coding with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript/jQuery. Add back-end functionality with PHP & MySQL, and build custom WordPress themes.
Open to Beginners
Students should feel comfortable coding HTML and CSS. You should have knowledge equivalent to our Web Development Level 2 class.
