We take a new and different approach in this course to WordPress development.  It is important to understand some of the conventions we are moving away from though as we explore JS driven WP development.

I recommend having a basic understanding of WP theme development, the template hierarchy, hooks, and possibly even how to build a plugin.  I have several courses on these topics available now that you might want to check out:

You can get a free trial on Treehouse for these courses or download them all with a paid plan.

You do not need to know all of this in depth, but we will look at WordPress themes and plugins in the course and not get much into the PHP side of things.
