After completing the Camino de Santiago (a 900km trek across Spain on foot), Joel returned to a life out of continuity with his new experiences. He soon left his full-time web development gig, left his home in the suburbs and exchanged everything for self-employment and a shared living space with a bunch of artists in Calgary's city core.
Joel identifies as a serial entrepreneur. He'll never work "by the hour" again, instead he trades real results with his clients. Joel is excited to be one of Code College's new interns!

Course delivers as will you; Create and Ship a Complete WordPress Plugin
"This course takes you through the entire development of a WordPress plugin from inception to upload and even explains how to handle plugin updates. Speaking specifically on the WordPress Plugin API, you will create and use Hooks (both Actions and Filters) and Shortcodes frequently throughout the course. Handling form submission with AJAX, creating and saving your own WordPress options, database manipulation, sending emails with WordPress and procedurally creating admin pages/menus are just some of the things you learn in the course.
You can take a look at the full curriculum for specifics but in brief: the volume of information makes for great value. Joel is well spoken and thoroughly explains the code. He is active in the discussions and frequently exceeds my expectations when it comes to answering a question. He knows his stuff. Updates/Edits to the course are made regularly (with the help of students) and substantially improve the accuracy of the information presented.
As for production quality, simply see one of the Preview videos. The course does require a knowledge of PHP and knowledge of SQL also doesn't hurt. I went into this course knowing nothing about WordPress development. Having visited the documentation I know I still have plenty to learn but I now have a better handle on how to use that information. If you want to learn to build WordPress plugins this is an excellent first choice. This course is proving invaluable as a companion resource while creating my own plugin."
