    April 2, 2016 — If you have ever had a client pick out a random theme, and asked you to build it out- then you spent 2 days learning how it worked- then this is for you. Don’t spend all your time learning new wheels- get a framework and learn it inside and out.

    The Bonus? Build sites in 2 days, not 2 weeks.
