By Maya Bielik | in Online Courses

Don't let your website miss out on the traffic potential living in the mobile world. This course will teach you to build native mobile apps with zero coding required, so you can double your audience without skipping a beat.

Maya has been building websites since she was 15. What started as a hobby, turned to be her profession 10 years later. She mostly works with Wordpress, and besides creating websites for customers, she started giving lectures about this system a few years ago as well. Her motto is KISS (Keep It Simple, Student!); in her everyday life, she tries to find ways to NOT spend hours learning code by finding the "shortcuts" that people already created, like Wordpress. Then, she takes what she learned and passes it over to her students, so you can create amazing things too.For more details on this course and instructor, click here.
