About CraftQuest

In 2018, Ryan Irelan launched CraftQuest to create a new community around learning Craft CMS and modern web development. Going back to 2008, Ryan has authored and published training materials on web technologies. CraftQuest is the next iteration of his work on teaching and mentoring web developers.

CraftQuest is a comprehensive learning resource with unlimited access to video training to help you with your current and future projects. Updated weekly with new tutorials on modern web development.

This community exists to empower new and experienced web developers to learn new things and grow their skills. We aim to teach others and inspire them to build great things.

We can help you skill up for a new job or learn the skills to finish an important project. We are always here with new content every week to help you reach your goals.

Being busy means that it's too easy to overlook the importance of updating your knowledge. I find that the overview learning I get from CraftQuest is just enough without feeling bogged-down and it's always there as a refresh when I need it.
