This virtual self-study group will focus on advanced WordPress development. LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) offers a 10-module series (21 hours) entitled Become an Advanced WordPress Developer.

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

NOTE: This virtual self-study group will begin on time. Currently, Season 3 does not have a Senior Percolator (facilitator). A Senior Percolator is someone who is interested in the topic, participates AND is willing to lead by helping others along the journey with periodic communications. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator and giving back to the Boston PHP community.
