One of which is version control.
In this course I would like to take you through how to properly navigate, Git a system of version control for every aspect of your WordPress site including themes, plugins the database and uploads.
We will also dive into the command line moving away from graphical user interfaces, so to leverage the power of git and bash scripting.
In this course we will be covering how to:
- Create a Free Account on Github
- Install Git on a machine
- Setup Version control on a WordPress site locally
- Some basic bash scripting for git and WordPress
- Properly link a local git repository to Github
- The logistics of pushing and pulling to Github using nothing but the command line
- Write a portable bash script that can automatically download and install plugins as well as import and export a WordPress database
- How to link a WordPress site to a Content Delivery Network for free, to simplify upload management and speed up your site dramatically
I have no doubt that if you are a WordPress developer and you are not currently using version control everyday that this course will be a massive additional bonus to your skill-set.
