"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time."

NOTE: This virtual self-study group will be led by Gene Babon, Chief Percolator. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator, leading a virtual self-study group and giving back to the Boston PHP community.


This virtual self-study group will focus on fundamental WordPress development. Lynda.com (rebranded as LinkedIn Learning) offers a 14-part series entitled Become a Junior WordPress Developer.


Access to this certificate program is available for FREE to Boston Public Library or Cambridge Public Library members.

Self-Study Group Format

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant gains access to a Lynda.com (LinkedIn Learning) account.


• Each participant commits to review one video-based series per week, complete any exercises and post links to a sample WordPress website you will develop along the way.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board (link below) for each module. Each comment will receive a response. Participants will also receive a weekly group e-mail update.


• Each participant will receive a certificate to post to your LinkedIn account upon completion of each module.

NOTE: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have access to Lynda.com (LinkedIn Learning), you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
