About the course

Do you want to create a WordPress theme that really works? Would you like to learn how to edit a WordPress theme without suffering?

I know that searching the Internet for articles and tutorials is quite frustrating. But if you really want to learn everything about creating WordPress themes, you’ve found the right course! This course will pave the way for you to become an official WordPress theme developer.

Imagine yourself doing what you love most, whether at home or in your own company, being your own boss, and even earning top dollar! Good developers can earn from $3,000 to $15,000 creating a custom WordPress theme. So knowing how to create WordPress themes is synonymous with being able to earn very well, as this is currently one of the most sought-after skills on the market. WordPress is behind 30% of websites worldwide. In other words, it is a growing market!

If you are looking to earn extra money, or even want to work as a full-time freelancer, this course will prove to be perfect for you. It brings what I call a ‘simplified approach’ to the subject, because that’s the way I tried to structure the course for you. I didn’t have chances to learn in an easy way in the past, which is why I decided to make it as easy as possible for my students.

You won’t have to go through all the tiresome and often useless research that I had to go through. Everything I learned is summarized in this course. It covers all the fundamental aspects of learning how to create a WordPress theme from scratch. You will be catapulted to a new professional level.

By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation to become a skilled theme developer. You will be able to master a complete set of skills such as creating a theme independently, or editing a third-party WordPress theme.

Here are some of the things you no longer need, because all the necessary knowledge will already be at your fingertips:

  • You no longer need to read pages and more pages of documentation to understand how to create WordPress themes;
  • You no longer need to waste time reading long tutorials on the web;
  • You no longer have to be bored looking for or watching useless content on YouTube.

Who this course is for:

  • Web designers, programmers, students, or IT professionals who want to learn how WordPress works and make money from it
  • People who want to create themes for themselves, for their customers, or for sale and distribution in theme sales markets. You decide how you want to turn the knowledge you acquire here into money.
  • Professionals who want to build responsive themes with WordPress
  • This course is not for you if you have never written a line of code before
