Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of WordPress and Genesis: Customizing Themes.
Before we jump into the lessons, I want to make sure you're set up for success. You'll get the most out of this course if you already have a basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and PHP. That's doesn't mean you have to be an expert. But you'll be able to follow along more easily if you're already a little familiar with those languages. Also, because this is a WordPress course, it's important that you understand how WordPress works. If you're new to WordPress, I suggest you take the WordPress Essential Training course in the lynda.com library.
With this knowledge under your belt, you'll be set up for maximum success in this course.
