[wpsm_box type=”blue” float=”none” textalign=”left”]
What you’ll learn
Create websites and blogs with WordPress
Update and edit existing WordPress websites
Setup dynamic blog sections organized by category
Create a “Contact Us” page with interactive map and email form
Whether you want to create websites without coding, or you need to learn WordPress so you can update existing websites at your job, I’ve got you covered.
In this brisk but thorough course we build a website together step-by-step and along the way you organically absorb and master WordPress. I’m all about having you follow along with me and I always encourage experimentation over memorization. My ultimate goal is to give you the “vocabulary of WordPress” so you can continue learning independently long after this course completes. There is no prerequisite knowledge required!
Here’s a summary of what we cover:
- Asking and answering “What is WordPress?”
- Setting up a new WordPress site/project
- Creating pages
- Creating blog posts
- Customizing the colors & theme of your website
- Embedding YouTube videos into your website
- Setting up custom navigation menus
- Creating photo galleries
- Inviting friends / family / coworkers into your WordPress (multiple authors)
- Asking and answering “What is a plugin?” & “What is a widget?”
- Letting visitors of your blog posts comment via their Facebook / Twitter accounts
- Configuring an interactive “Contact Us” page
- Guarding ourselves from comment and contact-form SPAM
- Using a custom homepage instead of a generic “blog listing”
This course may be brand new, but this isn’t my first time teaching. I’ve led training sessions for Fortune 500 companies and I’ve already helped over 140,000 people on Udemy and received the following feedback:
“Brad definitely has some of
the best techniques to embed the lesson into your mind… hands down these
are the best tutorials I have had the opportunity to view.”
“Presentation is concise without being tedious… you honestly feel that you have a thorough understanding of the subject.”
“…[Brad] explained the process. Not memorize this or that, he explained the process. If you’re looking to take a course to understand the foundations of creating websites, look no further.”
Become highly valuable and relevant to the companies that are hiring WordPress creators; in one convenient place alongside one instructor. If you’re ready to begin creating and updating websites – I’ll see you on the inside!

Very good course for the ones who have basic knowledge in programming concepts.
For absolute beginners in programming, this course is a bit tough..kudos to Angela for creating this course…waiting for your next.
Carl Everest –
Great course, can\’t wait to continue.
Right now at lesson 52,
This course is amazing, the best course I have ever taken. This is a game-changer.
Just show up every day, and invest all the time it takes. Go for it.

The teacher, Angela, is an excellent instructor. This 100 days of Python code is fun along with many hurdles to cross. I have taken 95% of the course but I need to revise some of the projects to better understand the logic & codes. Towards the end the course, it’s believed that you should have learnt enough to fly on your own.
Wonderful course & I recommend it.

I\’ve had a good experience with this course. I learned a lot, Angela went deep diving into some of the more complex concepts and broke them down into pieces, that evantually led to these so-called complex topics become simply easy. This easily deserves 5 stars, being able to understand how things work, using documentation and just the process of developing, is something rare, but this course provides you with it, and that deserves 5 starts.
Now, that was the pro, let\’s get to the con. I was tempted to give this course 4.5 stars, but evantually made it 5 because of the amazing explanations that led me to understand some topics I thought were so complex before. Why did I want to give it 4.5 stars? Well, because of the Data Science part, in days 71-80, you get pre-made documents with explanations and learn Data Science, and sure, maybe Angela wants to challenge you, but that\’s the wrong topic to choose to challenge a programmer. This topic is complex, it\’s frustrating, and hanging us out to dry with it is not helpful, whatsoever, I ended up feeling really insecure after this part. And maybe that\’s just me, maybe other people understood it better, but I believe that this topic deserved some videos and explanation, so we could understand how things tick. However, this course is still 100% worth buying, it\’s just that the last part of this course felt like it was already too far with the \”deal with it\” part of the course. I hope I\’ll be able to understand Data Science and actually enjoy it at one point, but this, didn\’t provide what I needed to understand the topic and enjoy it, it led to me being frustrated and doubtful about my ability, and some of you might say, \”that\’s just a part of being a programmer\”, well, it is, but with this being a course, and with Data Science being a new topic, I believe that it deserves more explanation and videos that could help us see what is going on behind the scenes.

I was craving for a programming language compatible with or best for A.I. And voila! Just a day or two after, I discovered this course. I of course didn\’t have a mac or interested in web designing. This course was just what is above my expectations!!!!

pros :- 1. good way of teaching
2. useful exercises in every modules
3. different topics covered
1. Python taught here is only of beginner level. basically you are taught all you need to start learning a framework or anything related to python , but it isn\’t touching any intermediate or advance topics. there is a lot more in python than just what is taught here .
2. you get to become jack of all trades ,but master of none. you learn many different topics , but nothing is in depth as it should have been , including python itself
3. Teacher doesn\’t reply no matter how many doubts you have, I guess this goes with evey course of angela.
4. way too long than it has to be .
I literally didn\’t feel like continuing this course anymore ,lessons are long enough to make a beginner discontinue it. I completed the rest of my python journey from youtube and that\’s where I found out that this course is missing way too many things.
5. save time by watching every lesson in 1.5x speed. this isn\’t an issue until you reach intermediate level in this course.

Loved the course and it\’s structure of doing something new everyday and tackling it one piece at a time. Also nice to be able to build so many apps so that you can actually see what you are learning, loads of practical to support the theory

Kunwar Nahush Singh –
Awesome !! Filled me with confidence. Really helpful for me.
Before Day 38, everything was excellent, but Day 38, there were less and less videos, spent 6 hours debugging an error but still can\’t get the correct ENDPOINT website. On the SOLUTION they only put \”YOUR ENDPOINT\”. I\’m frustrated. I need the exact ENDPOINT because that\’s where I\’m stuck at
Devang Jain –
The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don\’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end
The best and most thorough Python course I\’ve taken. Well worth the time you put into it. This course serves as an introduction to most of what Python has to offer and is beginner friendly, but increases in difficulty as it progresses, making it ideal for all levels (I had a year of Python experience before I found this course). I recommend this course to anyone learning Python at any level.
