Jae is extremely knowledgeable and very generous with sharing real-life industry tips and his best of practice techniques. I really benefited from being able to ask Jae a direct question and have him patiently help me through my learning process.

Beginner Instructor

This is clearly the best training investment I have ever made! I have employed other training programs from books to screencasts, but Creat-ee's training program is the best by a mile. Not only do you learn the essentials, but Jae incorporates techniques that would take months/years to uncover on your own. He created true "aha" moments with Expression Engine 2.0 training.
