In this class, you’ll learn how to make a website using WordPress. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to launch right into a real-world project.
The ultimate goal of this course is to get you comfortable with and excited about the world’s number one CMS. (And to learn what a CMS even is). We think you’ll be amazed to find how easy it is to build a site that really looks and functions like the websites you use every day.
