ExpressionEngine Courses Price Reduced

by Ryan Irelan

Last week EllisLab released ExpressionEngine 3, the latest major update to the CMS. You can read more about this update on their blog.

The new version sports a brand new control panel interface, a revamped add-on development framework, and other changes.

However, the templating system is the same and how you structure and build your websites on ExpressionEngine should not fundamentally change.

My ExpressionEngine tutorials and courses are still useful because of the fundamentals they teach. However, some of them will be more challenging to follow along with because the Control Panel is different.

This doesn’t mean you can’t learn from them but it does mean it might be a little bit of extra work.

Because of that I’ve slashed the price on courses by up to 60%. For example, you can get the Learning ExpressionEngine course for only $20 (normally $49.99).

Quite the deal.

I’ll have more updates in the future about updates to the course (or, most likely, a brand new course) to cover ExpressionEngine 3.

If you want the course, please email me to let me know. If there’s high demand I’ll move it up on my list.

Ryan on ALA: On Air Panel

by Ryan Irelan

This coming Tuesday, August 25, 2015, I will be on the ALA: On Air panel all about content management systems.

CMSes help and hinder; they inspire rapture and incite table-flipping. I’m thrilled to moderate the next ALA: On Air event, where Karen McGrane, Jeff Eaton, and Ryan Irelan will join me to discuss what they love about working in CMSes (administrative UX!), what drives them to frustration (decoupling!), and what meaty problems (integration with design systems!) they hope to dive into next.

The panel will cover a handful of topics, including decoupling systems and headless CMSes.

If you work with CMSes at all, this is the must see panel. It’s free, online, and if I do my job, fun and informative.

Learn more about the event and then register to attend.

See you there!

One-on-One Coaching with Ryan

by Ryan Irelan

I am offering a new opportunity when you purchase the Learning ExpressionEngine course: one or two one-on-one sessions with me to discuss specific questions about ExpressionEngine, your project, your development work, or anything you’d like.

The one-on-one sessions are easy to add right when you purchase the course (choose one or two sessions from the drop-down) and I’ll follow up via email to schedule your session.

Get started learning ExpressionEngine with one-on-one coaching.

I was a guest on the Education Hackers podcast with Steve Atwal.
