I am pleased to announce that our latest course - How to Build a Joomla 3 Website from Scratch - is now available as part of our Beyond the Basics series. This course is perfect for beginners as it covers the five main areas to conquer in order to build and maintain a website. This is the third time I have produced this course, but the previous versions were designed to help students kick-start their websites quickly and had just six lessons. However after teaching Joomla in a classroom environment, it became obvious that beginners need even more help. So this new version is a massive update with 43 lessons and over 6 hours of recordings.
