1.1 Welcome to the Course
In this course, you will learn what Ghost is and how to set up a local development environment for creating or modifying Ghost themes. Then we'll cover how to get a theme from Envato Elements, customize it, and upload it to your live Ghost blog.
This course is not really for beginners because to understand what I’m about to do you need some basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. So if you have that, awesome. If you don’t, stick around anyway because I’ll try to make everything as simple as possible.
So, with that said, let’s begin! In the first lesson I’ll give you a quick introduction to what Ghost is all about and why you should use it. See you there.
