I'm impressed! I do coding for life PHP, Java, Grails, HTML5, Css3, Sass, Less, JS u name it. I just needed some quick intro to WordPress coding. I find your way of explaining thing very approachable and clear. Not to mention that your professional  coding level is outstanding.

What kind of text editor do you use? It seems rather useful for the HTML/PHP combination.

+Mathinez RS I use an editor named "TextMate" because old habits die hard 🙂  I recommend a text editor named "Sublime Text" – it's still minimalistic but has amazing features!

Dear Sir: Most people will notice the technical aspect of this tutorial and find it extremely helpful, as did I. However, as university professor, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your teaching skills. Normally viewers do not realize how time consuming preparing a good lesson is. Congratulations, and keep up the excellent work!
