About the WP101 Series...
Just about anyone working with WP, from rookies to seasoned veterans should find some serious value here...
This is an exclusive series that we're assembling in collaboration with the super talented Shawn Hesketh and WP101.com. It's part of our "Basix" series for anyone brand new to the platform, but just about anyone working with WP, from rookies to seasoned veterans should find some serious value here:
- Experienced designers, developers, and agencies can send your clients to this series for basic training.
- Theme and Plugin developers can include links to these videos in your own documentation.
- Anyone brand new to WordPress can check out these videos before starting the rest of our "Basix" tutorials.
We'll eventually have just about 20 posts in all, which means that when we're done, you'll have a great place to send clients or review all of the basic bits and pieces of WordPress. We'll likely be releasing two of these each weekend to help spread them out a bit, so check back each weekend for the next segment!
