#DidJuno 35% of the internet is powered by WordPress? And Shopify revenues nearly doubled during COVID-19 due to the rise of ecommerce?

No matter how long you've been a web developer, knowing how to work with two of the world's most popular content management systems (CMS) is an essential addition to your web development toolkit.

At Juno, we know that learning is a life-long journey - that's why we offer a wide array of courses for different experience levels. If you're confident in your HTML & CSS knowledge, our intermediate WordPress & Shopify Development course is the perfect way to level up your skill set! If you're new to coding, this course is the perfect addition after you've taken our beginner-friendly Web Development course. Plus, the course is now available in a Live Online format, meaning you can learn this valuable skill from the comfort of your home.

What will I learn?

WordPress and Shopify are two content management systems (CMS). WordPress is a free, open-source CMS that allows users to create their own websites, blogs, portfolios, online stores, and more. Shopify is a subscription-based ecommerce platform that allows merchants to start, grow, and manage their business. Both WordPress and Shopify include numerous plugins and features, including their own template systems (also known as custom themes).

In our WordPress & Shopify Development course, you'll gain the skills you need to build beautiful custom themes to round out your portfolio, take on larger freelance projects, or level up at the agency you're working at.

Through in-class instruction and hands-on practice, you will:

  • learn why WordPress and Shopify are the industry standard for clients
  • gain a foundational understanding of these powerful content management systems
  • leave with two stunning portfolio-ready projects

This part-time course is designed to fit with a busy schedule, with sessions running on evenings in our signature 8-week format.

What will I build?

Throughout this course, you'll build a WordPress website and a Shopify ecommerce store to add to your portfolio! Juno student Sam Pilehvarian created a fictional Shopify store for film lovers. Built with Liquid, Shopify, HTML5, CSS3/Sass, and JavaScript, users can browse the inventory, filter, sort, and search the titles by variety of keywords and flip through all available collections. Check out his live Shopify project here.
