Learn to code with the most popular language used by content manager systems

Web development brings together a growing number of programming languages, but there are few that have stood the test of time like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This is also the case for PHP, a language that dates back to 1995 and that remains the most widely used programming language by content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.

In this online course, learn the basics of programming in PHP and create a small CMS to get started with this fascinating language together with Ignacio Cruz Moreno, a developer specialized in WordPress.

If you've already taken Ignacio's first course, Creation of a Professional Website with WordPress, it's now time to take it a step further and create your own platform to suit your needs.
