These are weird times. Like most people, David and I are at home, spending time with our spouses, reworking travel plans, and wondering how the rest of this spring and summer will play out.
One way we know we can help is by supporting anyone who wants to learn WordPress development during this time. We don’t know your situations, but we can guess that some of you may be facing job or financial insecurity, stuck indoors with a lot of unexpected free time, or really into the idea of working from home from now on—maybe all three.
So here’s what we’ll be doing:
1. Two Free, Open-to-All Webinars This Week, on WordPress Development Topics You Choose
I’ve personally wanted to start offering open WordPress development webinars for a long time, and now’s the time to do it. I’ll be offering two free WordPress development webinars this week, open to everyone.
I’ve chosen two different times of day. I’m hoping at least one should be workable for most people:
- First webinar: This Thursday, March 19, from 3 PM to 4 PM US Eastern time (time zone converter tool)
- Second webinar: Next Monday, March 23, from 1 PM to 2 PM US Eastern time (time zone converter tool)
Both webinars can be on any topic you choose related to WordPress development. Fill out the Google form linked below to suggest the webinar topics that would be most helpful to you:
I also want to have some sense of attendance, so please fill out the Google form linked above to let me know your attendance plans.
The webinars will be on Zoom, which is the best video calling app we’ve found. I’ll follow up with the topics you’ve chosen, and with technical details for Zoom, on Thursday and Monday themselves.
2. Discounts on Our Paid Courses, and Flexibility for People Who Need Deeper Discounts
During this period, we want to make our premium courses financially within reach for everyone who wants to learn. I’ve discounted both the Deluxe and Pro Bootcamp tiers of our WordPress development course Up and Running, as well as our security course WordPress Security With Confidence, by 20%. Use code 20in2020 at checkout for the discounts.
We also want to help people learn who are facing additional financial pressure. If you’re interested in Up and Running Deluxe, the Up and Running Pro Bootcamp, or WordPress Security with Confidence and are concerned about costs, please email us at contact (at) wpshout.com.
These discounts apply between now and Monday, March 23, at 11:59 PM Eastern time.
3. A “Learning Cohort” Starting Next Week for Up and Running Students
Up and Running is our flagship course on the fundamentals of WordPress development. For all existing Up and Running students, and anyone who joins (in either of the tiers we offer, Deluxe or Pro Bootcamp)
