What will I learn?

Customise the Umbraco back-office to give content editors the best CMS experience ever.  Build great websites with a tailored user experience for your editors. Customise and extend the Umbraco back-office with custom components using Angular JS.

After the this one day course, you'll learn that Umbraco is a developer's best friend and you’ll be an Umbraco heavyweight!

Learn from the best

All certified Umbraco trainers know their way around the Umbraco source code, and have several years of Umbraco development and implementation experience. They know the real-life challenges you have with working with Umbraco, and love to share their knowledge.

Pre-requisites:

  • You should bring your own laptop
  • Computers that are locked down by IT have a history of causing problems, so ensure that you have user rights to run a web project on your machine

Before attending this course you should have a basic understanding of the following topics (with some practical application):

  • Umbraco Document types and templates
  • Creating content in the Umbraco UI
  • JavaScript, CSS and HTML

Praise for our courses

Everything I learned will prove very helpful towards coding within (and extending on) Umbraco in future. My teacher provided many tips and advice that will prove very useful (even helping with information outside the scope of the work specifically covered in the course).
I'd definitely recommend the course to any friends or associates.
