About Course

This course will guide you through every single step from installation to finished website. I'll show you how you can install Wordpress on your own computer for free, so you don't have to pay for a domain name or hosting fees while you complete this course. Once you've got Wordpress installed on your computer, you will learn how to build and run a successful, beautiful, responsive-design website you can be proud of.

Description

This tutorial will help you learn quickly and thoroughly. We start with “Hello World” and then move on to data structures (sets, lists, tuples and dictionaries). Next we’ll cover classes, and give a variety of in-depth examples and applications.

You’ll be exposed to principles and strategies, but, more importantly, you’ll learn how to actually apply these abstract concepts by coding three different websites for three very different audiences.

What Will I Learn?

  • Know how to configure Wordpress for best results
  • Understand plugins & themes and how to find/install them
  • Protect their Wordpress website from hackers and spammers
  • Create a static homepage useful for most websites, or a blog like homepage useful for bloggers.
  • Create an affiliate site for passive, recurring income
  • Create a Responsive Website that looks good on any browser

Very good course, great structure, really easy to follow. Have gone back and forth many times to check on some issues arising on my site. Also very handy to see what kind of plugins are available to serve different purposes.

Excellent feel good fit for my I study and install accounting software. However wow a lot of stuff covered here. For me great. For a lot of others beginners may be a little over whelming. Again for me extremely helpful. I study software in chunks.
