Having strong HTML and CSS skills may have opened a number of doors for you in this industry, but have you ever felt held back from working with a client because they were asking for more than just a static web site? This 8-week workshop will teach you more advanced techniques to take your web development skills to a whole new level.
As you learn how to code using Sass, PHP, MySQL, and JQuery, you'll soon learn how easy it is to apply all of these techniques with your own personalized design choices to build powerful WordPress themes. Clients will then have access with todays most popular content management system (CMS) to update and modify their own content and utilize the powerful plugins readily available within the Wordpress framework. In addition to working with GitHub to manage version control and collaborative development, you’ll also learn a number of important freelancing skills such as client acquisition, how to charge your clients, and best practices for communicating and managing them. If any (or all) of this terminology is intimidating—don’t worry! All of these skills will become part of your routine as you take greater control and begin building more complex websites.
