WordPress Plugin Development Tutorials — Alessandro Castellani – A REALLY good resource for learning all there is to know about Plugin Development…a little dated but his YouTube channel is updated all the time. This was my “go to” learning series when I first started.
Here are some documents I put together, some of which I used in class:
Firstly, this Bootcamp has a schedule of one 3-hr class per week in the evening from 6–9pm. This is specifically so people can take the Bootcamp while they continue to work. Later we learned it works great for high schoolers as well due to their intense day schedule. Each course in the Bootcamp gives, on average, three hours of homework, although students can opt to put more time in at home than that with extra assignments. Bootcamp staff are always available to answer questions outside of class hours. Results vary widely depending primarily on how much time a student decides to allocate for the program outside of class. Additional factors in student achievement have proven to be whether the student has any previous exposure to programming or website building, and how comfortably a student navigates using multiple computer programs at once.
It is designed to help students to build highly efficient mobile responsive websites right there while taking WebDev I and WebDev II courses. This way they can start earning money while gaining more skills and knowledge. Our mentors are here to help you to deliver.
What we cover:
Marketing Intelligence Skills:
Understanding how to design for optimizing the user experience and building the user experience to converge with business goals for the website, techniques for researching how to optimize for your users and techniques for measuring your success, understanding how to optimize for ranking in Google search results, intro to how to use Google Analytics and Google Ads to measure success.
All Bootcamp instructors are real-world tech professionals, so the information is delivered with relevant professional savvy.
The Bootcamp moves very quickly through a lot of information to give students the advantage of attaining a global view of universal fundamentals. It takes time to build these skills. Students who are able to put more time in between classes, will come much closer to skill mastery than students who just focus on the material during class time. But because there is so much information to consume, we also offer that students can take any Bootcamp course a second time at no charge.
phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relations, indexes, users, permissions, etc) can be performed via the user interface, while you still have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement.
Learning schedule for 2019 starts Thursday, January 26th!
