Wordpress for beginner

Is there any total free website that I can start learning WordPress ? I have gone through several video but it seems that all of them need to subscribe an account in HostGator which is not free.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you could sign up to Wordpress (free) and make a blog at www.wordpress.com  and play around with it, but if you wanted to get to grips with Wordpress   you could set it up locally on your computer and practice that way.

depends on if you have a MAC or PC.

for a Windows Computer follow:

Is there any example to build a shopping carts / e-commerce so that I can follow up ?

Thx again.

I use woocommerce  they provide plugins and themes for shops.
the best way to learn is to try it out
download the free parts   (to make it a decent shop you will need buy some addons  though)

then add some products , configure the payment to cheque (to let you practice and understand how it all works without paying all the time)


and they provide lots of free documentation....
