KnowTheCode – (Based in the US, members globally. Course is in English)
KnowTheCode is a course site covering Genesis and WordPress lessons which was created and is maintained by Genesis core contributor and community pillar Tonya Mork.
KTC offers an incredible collection of sequential lessons that build upon each other in an effort to help you become a better WordPress developer.
Tonya’s background in advanced engineering and her passion for educating has served her well with the courses she offers through KTC. If you want to learn to code the “right” way, KTC does an excellent job at setting you well on your way.
KTC offers a Genesis-specific course called the Genesis Developer Roadmap which builds on their “Fundamentals” course and is a great baseline for upping your WordPress development skills. Both courses include free lessons, so you can get a feel for the content and see what it’s like learning through KnowTheCode before you buy the complete course.
I can’t speak highly enough of Tonya and the work she’s done with KTC and beyond. If you’re ready to accelerate your ability in creating awesome experiences with WordPress and Genesis, definitely check out the Genesis Developer Roadmap course by KnowTheCode!
SridharKatakam.com- (Based in Australia, members globally. Course is in English)
SridharKatakam.com is a Genesis course site and snippet library maintained by long time Genesis community leader Sridhar Katakam. Sridhar has been such a prolific contributor, especially around his code snippets, that his snippets are affectionately called by some “the 2nd Genesis code base”.
Sridhar does an excellent job of not only providing a rich library of lessons and tips, but providing those lessons in an approachable and actionable way. After many years running this site, the collection of educational material is awe-inspiring.
Full members can also request new tutorials in the members’ forum which are often released as new tutorials for all, and of course, the members’ forum itself is an excellent resource for learning with others.
The Genesis community is BETTER because of Sridhar’s contributions and I know many of you have felt that. He brings that same level of giving and prolific educating to SridharKatakam.com.
Coupled with excellent educational content, super useful code snippets, options for direct support on implementation (really!), and backed by one of the most beloved people in the Genesis community, SridharKatakam.com is an excellent choice as you expand your knowledge and abilities with WordPress and Genesis!
Carrie Dils on LinkedIN Learning (US based, members globally. Course in English)
Carrie Dils is one of the Genesis Shapers who runs a well known and super helpful collection of courses available on LinkedIn Learning. Many of you may recognize Carrie from her constant contributions to the Genesis and broader WordPress communities.
As a talented educator, Carrie brings a no-nonsense and approachable style to her courses that help break down the complex and abstract into practical techniques and advice for you to use when building sites with Genesis.
Carrie features two very well done courses on LinkedIn Learning. The first course is “Learning Genesis for WordPress” which is a great overall walkthrough of best practices and techniques for building sites with Genesis. Her second course “WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes With Genesis” digs deeper on the finer points of building functional, beautiful, and performance themes. Helpful for novice and advanced developers alike, Carrie’s courses are a popular choice for people from across the Genesis community. Would recommend!
Here at WP Engine / StudioPress, we couldn’t be more proud to serve such a diverse and global community of people helping each other get better together. The courses listed in this post are just some of the excellent educational resources available in the Genesis community, but we’re excited to be able to celebrate the success and contributions of Nahuai, Tonya, Sridhar, and Carrie and the work they do to help the Genesis community grow and become better developers than ever!
