WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems available to web designers and developers. If you build websites, there’s a good chance that you’ve acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to work within WordPress — like PHP, custom post types, taxonomies, theme structures, etc.

The one thing WordPress doesn’t do very well, however, is ecommerce. That’s where Shopify comes in.

You may have already considered familiarizing yourself with Shopify and developing Shopify Themes to expand your service offering, but fear you’ll have to learn an entirely new platform from scratch.

Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

There are plenty of parallels between Shopify and WordPress — as a WordPress developer, you can get started with Shopify theming in under an hour.

With this free, 50-minute online training, Tiffany Tse — Developer Advocate at Shopify — will help you get started with Shopify theming by showing you how your existing WordPress knowledge and skill sets are transferable.

You’ll learn:

  • Basic theme features and Shopify equivalents.
  • Parallels in theme structure between WordPress and Shopify.
  • Theme templates and loading content on the front-end.
  • How to set up a local development environment, and what tools are available to get you ramped up quickly with Shopify theming.
