Let me introduce this hands-on code building lab to you. You and I are going to build this lab together. Our goal is to remove the site footer from your Genesis child theme. We’ll build four (4) different implementations which accomplish virtually the same result. We’ll talk about the pros and cons of each strategy and when to use one over the other.
It’s best that you do this lab with me. You will learn more when you actually write the code, explore the Genesis framework with me, and see what happens as you make changes. Instead of just watching or listening to me, do it with me. Instead of just copying and pasting the code, do the lab with me.
Why? There will come a time when you need a different implementation for a project. If you just copy and paste the code without learning why it works or when to use it, you’ll be stuck having to go search for another code snippet. It will waste your valuable time. When you are off searching for solutions in Google land, that time you spend is eating away at your project’s code. It’s reducing the amount of revenue and profit you will earn on that one project.
Learning deeply about web development incrementally builds your skills and proficiencies. As you learn, as each tip and process becomes part of your fundamental understanding, you are empowering yourself to build your themes by yourself in less and less time. You can crank them out, deliver to your client, and get paid faster and in less cost. That’s money in your pocket.
Therefore, come do this lab with me.
Break. Go rest your noodle for a couple of minutes.
