    Can i install and develop Umbraco site without programming background?

    Hi all,

    I want to build a site with Umbraco. I have worked with Wordpress before. Do i need to know html/css or C# to develop a site with Umbraco? If so what steps do you recommend me taking? Or can i just watch the videos on Do i have to learn code if i want to add some features in Umbraco? Hope to learn more from you all. It seems a robust architecture :)

    Greetings, Gerson

    You could done some things with Umbraco without deep knowledge about html/css but Umbraco is not like WordPress in the sense that’s there is tons of plugins for basically anything. I many case you’ll need to write some html/css to use the data that you’ve entered into the CMS.

    I would say that is a good starting point, any maybe spin up a free site on Umbraco Cloud to play around - or set up a local environment on you machine.

    Thanks Markus. I appreciate it! In what way will the .net Core impact Umbraco in terms of learning a html or css?

    Gerson, peace be upon those who follow guidance.

    • The web application source code in the browser is html and css which means understanding those languages is a must to know what is a page output code.
    • I suggest to install a lightweight plugin and see it's code in Umbraco backoffice to understand how it rely to it.
    • In case you plan to extend umbraco backoffice I suggest that you fork the source code of that plugin and start your project.
