Ecommerce Built Site

If I wanted to build a e-commerce website for my company, what courses should I begin with. I am in depth with HTML, CSS and somewhat familiar javaScript and jQuery. Will I need to learn PHP? Let me know what the best route to take is.

If you have a gold membership you can learn from the bonus lesson "How to Build an eCommerce Site Using WordPress & WooCommerce". You can also learn the php courses here in treehouse. http://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-a-simple-php-application


For an out of the gate, simple, secure, yet extremely customizable eCommerce solution, I highly recommend building on top of the Shopify platform. The theme customization is easy and if you're looking to get started fast and customize later, there are a bunch of great templates ready to go.

As for which courses you should look into. As always, the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript courses will be helpful when in comes to building the site. But I recommend the how to start, how to market, and how to build your buisiness courses here on Treehouse.
