Welcome, welcome, welcome!

Welcome to LearnWagtail.com. This website exists for one sole reason: to help lower the barrier to entry to Wagtail for new Python devs and existing Django developers. The Wagtail documentation is pretty good, but for newbies it's a bit overwhelming still, and refining the docs to something simpler is a lot of work, and not entirely necessary.

Over the last number of years I've had the opportunity to work with Wagtail CMS and dive fairly deep into it, and it's a beautiful CMS.

There are a lot of Wagtail websites these days, and the CMS is growing in popularity so I thought it was time for a dedicated tutorial site.

On this website is where you'll find my (I'm Kalob Taulien) free and premium Wagtail videos. There are over 50 free tutorials videos available on this website (or on YouTube), and over 40 more videos in the Wagtail for Beginners course.

I started this site because I started answering a lot of Wagtail questions, and many of these questions were repeating. Some people asked REALLY good questions and forced me to learn something new; but that knowledge is siloed in my head. This is a very common scenario for many developers. And while the Wagtail docs are good and constantly improving, I think there's room for a website that focuses on teaching certain parts of Wagtail from other developers perspectives.

My first official Wagtail mentee was a good friend of mine and fellow fullstack developer, Steven Steinwand. We went through building several sites together, and most of the tutorial videos are because he asked some really good questions that I've either heard before, or knew someone would end up asking it down the road.

My goal behind this website is to help developers learn more about Wagtail and Wagtail features.

I'm Kalob Taulien, a web developer, online dev instructor, and a huge Wagtail lover. I started this site to help developers learn Wagtail CMS faster, and easier. I hope you enjoy the videos!

Steven is a fullstack developer and a good friend of mine (Kalob). The new Learn Wagtail design was created and contributed to by Steven. He's asked me a lot of good questions, and has managed to push me as a developer. And I'm proud to say he's a supporting member of this website and a solid Wagtail dev! (Great job!)
