Learn how to take Divi to the next level with SJ James

It’s been a long time coming but SJ’s Divi course, Transforming Divi with CSS & jQuery is finally here and with it comes the opportunity for you to extend Divi well beyond what is available within the core Divi settings and to take your Divi web building skills to the next level.

“Learn the art of CSS and jQuery to master the craft of building Divi websites. Learn from the best in the business, SJ James – the founder and creator of Divi Space – and level up your web design skill set to land better clients, charge higher fees and grow your business.”

SJ James has been at the forefront of the Divi 3rd party plugin development scene for many years now with popular plugins such as Divi Switch and Page Builder Everywhere, so he is someone who knows Divi as well as anyone out there.

If you have seen SJ on the Divi Chat video podcasts, in the Facebook groups or any of the recent screencasts he has been doing with David Blackmon, you will also know that he has a deep understanding of the inner working of Divi and is able to explain the technical side of Divi in a quite non-technical way with clear instructions that are easy to follow and implement.
