What Others Have Said
Really love this course!
By: Kathryn Martyn
This course has helped me understand how to think in code. (Simple code, I'm no coding genius). Solving web design problems seems like magic when you know how to locate what you want to change (the element), and then how to write the code to target that specific element and this happened for me in the very first lesson. SJ is a great instructor; easy to follow, explaining concepts in a way that creates interest and excitement about the possibilities. Whether you completely understand CSS and jQuery or your a newbie like me, you'll quickly learn how easily it is to make changes that up until now you've spent hours searching the web for answers. Want to move a logo? Change a background color? There are hundreds of tutorials and guides, some up-to-date, some not -- and learning to find answers is a big part of learning to design web sites but here you've got the benefit of SJ's expertise, the Facebook group for sharing questions and ideas, and the entire Elegant Themes community. Best decision I ever made.
I am really happy I decided to give this a go
By: George Nicolaou
I am a developer that uses Divi almost exclusively. Sometimes when I come across courses like this they are usually so simple that I get nothing out of them. The reason I like this one so far is that yes the content may be things I know or have used before but the explanation and the way it's taught makes me want to come back and refresh what I know. That's not to say that I haven't learned new things because I have. I usually hang out on the ET support forum and help people with issues and I love doing it in my free time but people that are willing to learn will find that the way SJ teaches them how to use inspect element for example and debugging errors etc will probably lead to even DIYers not needing as much help. My point is either way you can learn a lot. Everyone should just take this course in my humble opinion.
Some Misunderstandings along the way.
By: Stephen Davies
I was disappointed to firstly not be able to access the course. Then to learn I can not complete it at my own space. The course it appears is only released in stages and I have to wait a week to get to the actual training bit rather than the introduction to... Wha tI have managed to get on to so far has been good and well presented but there are so many thing tripping me up along the way. I seem to be wasting a lot of time contacting support.
