It really depends on you needs. Do you want to learn how to be a WordPress developer meaning creating themes from scratch, writing your own plugins, shortcodes etc. or do you just want be a "master" user and learn best practices about being a WP admin.

If you want to develop then the Development track (excellent track by the way) is the one to go with. If you want just learn how to use WP then "Learn WordPress" track is the one. Also Wordpress for website owners cloud be helpful.

Hope this clear your mind !

Why not give the Wordpress Development Track a shot? I personally haven't taken it yet, but I've heard great things about it.

Hi there Denis,

I'd have no hesitation in recommending the "Learn Wordpress" track in the list of tracks.


This set of courses will teach you everything you need to know about building a site with no code.

Also you might want to see this list of Wordpress Courses I put together including courses in Learn WordPress and WordPress Development.

Thank you both Jonathan and Colin.

Thanks Raymon!!!

I would start with the Learn WordPress track Jonathan recommended above to dip your toe in the water and see how it goes. The courses covering WordPress are pretty comprehensive.

Just make sure to always write WordPress in camel case (capital P in the middle)!
