Hello, Amazing videos by the way. They are very informative. I wanted to see you thought the Jetpack and Gravity Forms courses be complete?
Shawn, I fully understand the situation and I appreciate your very thorough answer. I look forward to seeing the courses when they are ready. The rest of your courses are amazing by the way!
We’ve begun work on the Jetpack course, but were just informed that their upcoming release, version 4.1, will have a completely overhauled interface. So we’re having to hold off on further production until that new version is released. We’d hate to invest the time to create a series that would be out of date as soon as it’s released.
Once the Jetpack course is released, we’ll turn our attention to the Gravity Forms course.
You may have noticed that we are now partnering with experts to create our future course, like we did with Daniel Espinoza for our WooCommerce course. Until that course, I personally created every video on the site. That’s hard to scale, particularly when WordPress is updated several times per year, requiring me to continually update and re-record that series to keep it up to date.
This new model of partnering with outside experts will enable us to add new courses more quickly. Obviously, those production schedules will depend entirely on the availability of those individuals. So that’s one reason we don’t post target dates for future courses.
Another reason is that we must time our production with the release schedule of those plugins so that we don’t invest hundreds of hours into creating a course that is obsolete shortly after it’s released. This is what’s holding up the Jetpack course right now.
Hope this helps provide a little more insight into our production process.
Thanks for asking!
