Part 1 of my Series: From Zero to Hero Webmaster Class
All freelancers and business owners need their own website!
You may have heard that quite often, and in most cases, this good advice comes with a quite high price tag.
I am Marian Heddesheimer and I build and modify websites for clients using WordPress.
When I realized that people are paying me a lot of money, to add more functionality to their sites or to change their layout, I asked myself, how many people could use WordPress for themselves, if they don't need all these special features and designs.
This class will show you, how you can set up your website for free and you can get started with some free hosting, to follow all the steps in this class.
You will also learn, why I decided to use WordPress for this class, why WordPress is so special and why you can use it for free.
You don't need to have any technical knowledge, to follow this class. If you can watch this video, you already have all what is needed: A computer and access to the internet.
At the end of this class, you have set up your web hosting, installed WordPress and can show off your first website of your own.
I started computer programming back in 1988 when I created my first software with BASIC, Turbo Pascal and later in C++.
My primary domain in development was always database development, and I was a freelancer who created custom software for individual clients.
When the Internet came up with the World Wide Web and cheap web hosting for everybody, I switched over to Web-Development, which I started by learning PHP. I did some custom web software for my clients, using PHP as scripting language and MySQL as database software.
In 2010 I started using WordPress as blogging and content management platform and specialized in creating and modifying themes and plugins for this software.
Currently, I'm working as a freelancer, using job platforms like UpWork and codeable to find new projects with international clients.
I also write eBooks about WordPress and produce instructional videos that I offer on youTube, SkillShare, Udemy and Teachable.
