About the course

Many courses about WordPress start somewhere far down the path and skip the part about building a WordPress website from scratch. This course begins at the… beginning! You’re going to learn how to choose which WordPress site is right for you, how to get it installed, what tools you’re going to need, and even how to get your WordPress site looking right.

You’ll also learn how to choose the right hosting provider to make building a WordPress dead simple, see how to manage the basics of your site’s look and feel, and get to know the interface for adding and changing content.

This course is taught by WordPress developer Justyn Hornor.

The course’s tech review was performed by Mick Olinik, author of The WordPress Anthology, available on sitepoint.com/premium
