I took WordPress 101 from Adam Silver, which not only gave me the tools and understanding of how WordPress works, but the confidence to go out and build a website for my high school class to follow our upcoming 55th reunion. I would recommend this class to anyone who is either a novice or an expert, because the information Adam shares is invaluable.
