This is not your ordinary course on how to build a website. Wordpress 5.9 was released just a couple of weeks ago. It includes some major updates. It is perhaps the biggest overhaul of the platform since the move to the use of blocks in editing. And, this course is being rewritten to include these updates. This is as up-to-date as you can get.

But this course is about more than just navigating Wordpress. You will also learn the best practices of web design. You will learn about creating a unified message, creating a clean design, and optimizing for the search engines.

By the end of this course you will have built your own website.
