Hot on the heels of the Start with a Theme: Twenty Fourteen course comes the release of the second course I recorded over the Christmas holiday: The full update of WordPress Essential Training for version 3.8.
My first ever course with lynda.com was WordPress Essential Training back in 2010, and this new edition is the third remake of the course. The new course highlights new features in WordPress 3.8 and provides an updated approach to learning and mastering WordPress.
