That’s the percentage of websites that use WordPress. And the crazy part is…
WordPress is still growing!
It’s not too late to join the developers building the themes that power the web.
Make your first WP theme
If you’re interested in learning how to make WP themes, I’ve got some great news for you.
I just launched a complete theme development course that will teach how you to make your first theme from scratch. And the best part? The course is completely free.
Starting with nothing more than an empty file, you’ll learn how to build themes that are beautiful, responsive, and effective for any type of WordPress site. A little knowledge of HTML and CSS will help, but you don’t need to be a PHP or WordPress master to take the course.
You’ll start from scratch in this program and learn about every single aspect of WP themes while you make the theme. You’ll learn how to:
- Setup a local development environment
- Dynamically output user-generated content
- Create templates for posts, pages, and archives
- Style the theme so it’s fully responsive (mobile-friendly)
- Write clean code following WordPress best practices
And there’s so honestly much more. The course is massive! It’s over 26,000 words long with 56 lessons across 18 sections. You’ll write more than 600 lines of code each carefully explained along the way.
If you want to get started with theme development, signup and give the course a shot. Registration is completely free, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
If you’ve got any questions, head over to the contact page. I’ll be happy to help however I can 🙂
