Winter Eh says:

The PHP tags added to make a WordPress theme are cool to use once you learn them, it took me awhile to get it down. There is room for new better themes, I don’t know about plugins.

OAS Academy says:

What i like about wordpress is, it is a quick and easy website to throw up. Albeit it can seem bland, but they do the job. What about Joomla though?

hello world says:

I refuse to do web developmement with wordpress. I prefer no money than having to code a wordpress app. WordPress is great only for simple bloging.

pyroghost11 says:

scorlin gonzalez says:

do you think that wordpress is adequate for dealing with table like layouts and big data?

Todd Boothbee says:

Is block chain used in wordpress security?

David Basil says:

Oversupplied skill.

Chow Channel says:

How is learning how to code going to help you with wordpress? For example…If i learn PHP how is that going to help me with wordpress? (Besides making plugins, which you said is not a must to learn)

David Hahn says:

You mention wordpress if you want something more than Wix, for example; Pretend you’re trying to convince someone why that is true. Please make that argument

Michael Iniguez says:

I think that the new nerdlings don’t see WP as being something that will set you apart from the rest. But one thing is the market and the other is one’s ego. These are things that one realizes with decades of experience. What can one expect from the inexperienced but very opinionated croud? Remember dogs like to bark when others advance 😉

tzlil tutorials says:

of course you should

Abhinav Dwivedi says:

hey! great content, keep them coming

Jonas Kgomo says:

could you compare Golang and Python

Do kids use WordPress?

Oussama Essamadi says:

There’s nothing as cool and sexy as a man named Shefan, that knows what he’s saying, great one Stef, keep them up.

سراج نور says:

cool and sexy

Gol D. Roger says:

WordPress teach you to be dumb. Learn javascript and nodejs built your own website.

Grcvgc Vcbh says:

Why no sexy, because coding is not a must?

TokyoXtreme says:

I’ve only been watching your videos for just a few days now, but everything I’ve seen so far has been great. I’m signing up for your web development course now too.

Montaz Meah II says:

To me, WordPress is garbage, but I also think Microsoft Windows and Android devices are garbage. It’s because I hate how open sourced technology requires more setup and can lead to a chaos of compatibility issues to crash your site. Other people love the flexibility open-source gives them and think the setup time (or learning curve) is negligible in comparison. Therefore, learn WordPress in 2018 if you need the multitude of third-party plugins/themes and the freedom to do whatever the hell you want, or if you want to work with and develop sites for people who do.

Jacob Shore says:

Do you think WordPress developers will need to read React now that WordPress is going adopt Gutenberg in it’s core?

Osiris Hernandez says:

Hey Stef! First of all I want to say that I’ve recently just started watching a lot of your youtube videos and I’m really enjoying them. I’m a PHP/Laravel developer and I recently quit my fulltime job.

I’m thinking of giving freelancing a go. I don’t know WordPress but I know a fair amount of Laravel. My question then is, should I give freelancing a go with Laravel instead of WordPress? I want to continue improving my Laravel skills, and switching to learning WordPress for the same work purpose just doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. What are the advantages of freelancing with WordPress instead of Laravel?

digitalsketchguy says:

WordPress still has a good future. The mega premium themes will eventually run out of steam as their bloated code base will reduce them to snail mail downloads. People and big business will want bespoke and highly optimized, featherweight sites that are unique and do the job.
Grav might gain some ground in 2018 but nowhere near as user-friendly for admins and technophobes.

miguel saldaña says:

you should be born knowing wordpress by now…

William Kidd Jr. says:

As a person who’s tried wordpress before from a non-developer standpoint, it felt really bullky, chalky, and difficult to use (and being I didn’t build it from the ground up I didn’t feel it was truly mine). But as an aspiring web developer, I think it’s something I could get into as it would give me more control over the look and feel of it.

Sardar jaiveer singh sidhu says:

What do think about the rise of Squarespace ?

imaaiaUtube says:

What do you think of using theme builders only like Divi and HTML5, CSS & SASS for more modifications on my designs, and go ahead with that as a career?

jalabi99 says:

I’m learning WordPress by creating a blog for myself, which means I will also have to learn how to theme it. Then I’m going to learn how to make apps for Shopify. Between those two I should be good for the year.

HowPortal says:

WordPress released a new major version today (v4.9) with lot’s of features and improvements. but it’s sad that it’s still dont have proper category based media management which I find really bad. and wordpress is good if you have a small website. if website is getting bigger that crazy table (postmeta) getting really big and start to very slow. It’s a good platform for quickly lanuch your website. but it’s not a good choice for long term.

Ghazi Benzarti says:

is there more simple than wordpress ?

Dabayare says:

What happens to WP guys with all these tools like Elementor and WP Bakery?

Lloyd McVey II says:

Unless the client is in the tech sector their ability to code, modify, innovate is what should really be taken into consideration. At the end of the day they want something that looks “pretty” and works outta the box for them. Your awesome skills, libraries used, knowledge of(which they’ll pay you for but its all magic) doesn’t mean much. Will it work for me easily once you build it is their only real question. I use WP as a platform and recommend it a lot to friends even because of the turnkey nature of it(for someone who knows their way around). I think traditional builds can totally coexist with CMSs, Its just another tool in the solution box and a good one.

Richard Burns says:

Hi Stefan, a question from a rookie on WordPress: Can you share a link on how to move your domain from one hosting company to another? thanks

Ludwing Albert says:

Well, there is nothing as cool and as sexy than making money

marcel Barrios says:

Hi Stefan, I am learning web development. Is it better to specialize in wordpress, php and laravel rather than go with angular, react, express, and mongodb?. What I want the most is to get my first job as a web developer.
Thank you.
