“I have had memberships with Treehouse, WPSessions, First Version, and Pippin Williamson’s site. They all provided value to my career, but Know The Code has helped me attain a new level.”

“Know the Code (KTC) is an outstanding resource for anyone serious about becoming a WordPress developer or improving one’s existing skill and knowledge with the application.”
“Know the Code, to me, is one of a kind. At first, I thought it was going too deep and taking too long, but boy what was I wrong. I know now that learning to write professional clean and quality code requires you to go deep. It requires you to really know what it is that you’re doing. You don’t assume things, you just know it. It’s a real eye-opener to me. Tonya is leading me the way. You know that she knows and she explains it in such a simple manner, it’s a joy.”
“I’m currently on a quest to hopefully change my career path to something in the Tech Industry. In the 80’s, as a teenager, I started to play around in Basic on a Commodore 64. Ultimately I decided it had to stay a hobby. I know now that was a mistake.”
“In my spare time, I’ve learned a lot about coding. Used various sources to achieve what I wanted. But, if you’re really serious on leveling up your coding skills, nothing compares to the deep quality Know the Code provides. I highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Tonya!”

“I have had memberships with Treehouse, WPSessions, First Version, and Pippin Williamson’s site. They all provided value to my career, but Know The Code has helped me attain a new level. I’ve only been on the site for a little less than 2 months. In this time I’ve gone through the Genesis Theme Development course. After completing the course I was able to setup a theme quickly and get to work on customizing things. Normally it would take me about 3 months to build a theme at my job, with other projects in the queue, however, I’ll probably be done with my theme this week.”
“By using Genesis and this theme I built through the course, I’m more efficient and saving both time and money. The labs can be long but the content is broken up intelligently to give you a better understanding of why you’re actually writing that line of code.”
“I better stop, because I just can’t say enough about Know The Code.”
“Know the Code explains everything much clearer than any other online tutorial sites.”
“In a nutshell, Know the Code explains everything much clearer than any other online tutorial sites. KTC explains the WHY part of programming while most other tutorial sites just tell me WHAT and HOW. As an intermediary learner, what I am really interested and keen to know is the WHY. KTC helps me to cross the t’s and dot the i’s in WordPress development and general programming.”
“I’ve stopped grabbing snippets of code from all over the internet to actually building things myself. My cobbling [implementing] days are over.”
“I am a self-taught WordPress developer, and for some time I’ve been searching for a mentor who really teaches me code in depth. I discovered Tonya and after that Know the Code. Know the Code is exactly what I was searching for. It fills my knowledge gaps and teaches me to think about and write quality code.”
“Tonya is really the best teacher I have ever seen and I’ve tried all the online courses. She explains the why of things and goes very deep in code. But she explains it so well that everything becomes clear and easy!”
“Now when I look at my code from one year ago, I found it messy compared with how I code now.”
“I realize that I’ve taken some good habits in code that even more advanced developers don’t have. I’m faster and don’t have to google as much as before to find solutions!
“That’s only the beginning as I have so much to learn. But now I know where to go to learn it without pain!”
“Projects that were once daunting now seem fun. I’m not as fast as I want to be [yet], but I really love programming now.”
“After completing the Customizing Genesis and Genesis Starter Theme labs, I started a new project. I was able to work faster than I ever had because 1) I had a great starter theme I knew intimately and 2) I didn’t have to keep googling Genesis markup questions. All said and done, I increased my effective hourly rate 87.5% (yeah, I track my time:-), and this increase means if you join for a year, you can make you money back in your very next project).”
“But that’s not the whole story. I know how to think about my theming, my markup, PHP functionality, and more. What does this do? In a word: confidence. I’m more confident doing more complex and custom projects as well as asking for more money. I also know how to consult better on a client’s needs, know what’s possible, and what will take time.”
“Finally, Tonya is amazingly helpful and accessible, and the KTC and WPDC community rocks the kasbah.”
