Genesis Tutorials and WP Classroom are teaming up to bring to you – Genesis Classes.
WP Classroom is an online WordPress training site where you can learn WordPress from the ground up. Genesis Classes wont start till early September, but I’m currently putting together what the classes will consist of and looking to you for what you want to learn about the Genesis Framework and get out of these classes. May it be how to set up and use genesis as a blogger and use some the child themes available from StudioPress and their options, to building your own child theme to ready for the just announced StudioPress Theme Marketplace or your own use.
Help shape the classes
Always wanted to learn how to use the genesis loop function or genesis grid loop function or how to properly set up a custom template to be used within Genesis? Add your suggestions down in the comments section below. I want the content of these classes to be powered by you so you get the most out of them.
From these comments and questions I have received over the months of running the site I will be creating several classes at different levels. For the developer and advance classes, participants will get access to example files and even free child themes(basic) to help them get started. For the blogging and beginner classes, you’ll learn all about the available genesis child themes and options to set up the perfect blog/site for your use. Classes will be recorded so if you miss out don’t worry, you’ll be able purchase a recording of the class and receive any files the participants may have gotten. Depending how these classes go we may grow the Genesis learning experience offering several classes more focused on specific topics within the Genesis Theme Framework so make sure to comment below with anything you want to learn.
Also, to those wondering what’s the status of the site and my plugins I have been working on a Version 2.0 of the Genesis Visual Hook Guide (aka Genesis Developer’s Handbook) as well as a library of Genesis functions which I hope to have all packaged up and ready in a month or so as well asa major update to Genesis Post Teasers and an update to the Genesis Favicon uploader to help smooth out some issues some user have experienced with not being able to upload a favicon through the uploader. Also, I hope to add many more tutorials through prepping for these classes. I am a full time Designer at WebDevStudios and this is all a side project of mine cause I love the Genesis Community, but hoping to give back much more in the coming months; theses classes being one of the ways.
Hope to see you in Class ;).
