In the first project of the course, we’ll be building Fitra, a store that sells just one single product: a smart watch. We'll cover the basics of Shopify, and by the end of this project, you'll know how to build a theme from scratch.
For our second project, a store featuring a variety of home goods, we’ll go from a single product store to a site that can handle a collection of products. We'll cover intermediate topics such as working with the Ajax API and changing selector types.
The final project in this course is a full e-commerce platform that includes multiple products and multiple options for each product, such as color, finish and upholstery, so that your customers have full control over the products they buy! We’ll add in the ability to do currency switching, color swatch selection and everything else you’ll need to make a high-performing e-commerce store.
Our instructors have decades of professional experience, have spoken at international conferences and have won countless web design awards.
