Custom Onsite Training
WordPress is one of the most versatile and widely used web tools to date, giving users access to both simple blog designs and complex website assets.
While many people consider WordPress a simple blogging platform, it is also a powerful website management tool that has grown to dominate over 70 million internet domains, which means an understanding of the platform can be essential to anyone looking to claim their space online.
That’s why Web Guru is offering in-person WordPress Training Classes in the local Orlando area and nationwide. The course provides custom, hands-on learning with an instructor that has over a decade of experience in online media and web design.
In addition to the benefits of in-person learning, Web Guru also offers post-class support for questions and troubleshooting.
Along with in-person classes, there are many ways to find knowledge about the platform.
Sometimes it’s nice to get off your computer and interact with local social groups. Luckily, there are communities entirely dedicated to sharing WordPress design tips.
WordPress Orlando is the most prominent local group of platform experts and hobbyists, inviting new members to come and learn from a whole community of knowledge.
On a larger scale, WordCamp is a traveling conference where casual users can meet core developers and professionals for a weekend of learning and networking. This comes to Orlando and other cities in Florida every year, so check out their website for upcoming events.
Events like these can often be overwhelming to brand new users and the wealth of information can come too fast, which is why it’s often good to start at home.
The internet community has provided a cornucopia of learning tools, primarily in the form of video tutorials.
YouTube creator, Tyler Moore, has a strong collection of instructional videos that take you “step by step with no step skipped.”
LearnWebCode is another helpful YouTube channel that teaches HTML, CSS, and jQuery alongside WordPress.
Videos are often fun and easy to follow but lack the support and customization that comes with full educational courses.
Plenty of online developers also produce full web courses and lessons to give you a more in-depth learning experience.
WordPress has an official Codex with dozens of free lessons available to new users and professionals looking to brush up on their knowledge.
Lynda.com offers a full online training course for WordPress that includes Plugin Development, Theme Customization, and SEO analysis, making it the one-stop-shop for online learning.
Online courses often lack the customization and direct interaction that in-person classes provide but they are still an essential resource for newer users.
For more old-fashioned, textbook education, there are multiple resources available both as physical copies and as e-books.
WordPress To Go is my personal favorite textbook resource. Sarah McHarry’s publication carries knowledge directly from an expert who knows how to make complex concepts sound simple and doable. The writing is clear, concise, and most importantly, helpful.
Step-by-Step WordPress for Beginners is another helpful textbook that includes an additional video course. Lastly, WordPress All-in-One for Dummies is a large compilation of 8 WordPress books release in the For Dummies series, making it a huge resource in one collection.
Books are easy to manage and allow you to go at your own pace, but can often be out of date, especially in today’s fast moving online updates.
There are many resources available to boost your WordPress knowledge. But the best way to get all the benefits of customization, easy learning, and up-to-date support, is to attend Web Guru’s WordPress Training Course.
With all these ways to learn, there’s nothing stopping you from building the website of your dreams. Happy creating!
