Course Request: WooCommerce Themes & Plugins
The scope of these courses might be too focused for Treehouse, but I figured I would throw this idea out there to see if anybody else would be interested in these courses.
1- I would love to learn how to make WordPress themes that are compatible with WooCommerce.
2 - Also I would be interested in learning how to make plugins to customize the functionality of WooCommerce. A good, useful, and general example might be to make a plugin that allows you to have a storewide sale. This is not a feature that comes standard with WooCommerce.
I think you have one if you have a gold membership.

WooCommerce has a lot of plugins which you can buy on its site. Such as storewide sale in fact.
There's not much difference between building a theme with or without WooCommerce. It's just another set of pages that need styling. Getting into building custom WooCommerce pages is not something that can really be taught and something that you need to go out and learn yourself with time and experience. I set about learning WooCommerce a few months ago. Reading their codex and experimenting.
Yeh I agree, I would love to learn more Woocommerce; theme/plugin development. As well as a general discussion about online commerce solutions regarding the ethics of using Woocommerce as a CMS, recommended online products and full shopping cart integration, as every second client wants to an online store.
