The goal of this video and the playlist it’s in, is to help guide you through the process of coding your very own WordPress Theme and to get more familiar with the various aspects of coding.
I touch on how using Bootstrap 4 with Underscores can help you streamline your workflow and help you create unique WordPress Themes, either for your very own website or blog, or a theme to be uploaded to the WordPress Repository, or a theme that you sell on your website, or a custom theme you create for a client you have.

This video will help jump start your WordPress Coding Journey and hopefully serves as a valuable resource to helping you code and create, the next great WordPress Theme which will be the face of a hopefully, popular, WordPress Powered Website.
