About Me

Hey there! My name is Jonathan Jernigan.

I’m the owner and founder at APEX Web Solutions (my agency) and run the YouTube channel Jonathan Jernigan (formerly Permaslug). I’ve been building websites professionally since 2014 and creating tutorial content online since 2018.

On YouTube, I’ve released over 150 videos ranging from in-depth full website build live streams, to individual how-to style tutorials.

In 2020, I created the Ultimate Oxygen Course, which was the first available, longest running, and most successful Oxygen course with numerous 5-star reviews and over 1,000 sales.

In 2022, I released my second course, Generate Made Easy, where I’ve taught over 200 students how to build fast, powerful, accessible websites with GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks.

My 3rd course was released in 2023, called CSS Made Easy. I set out to teach WordPress web designers how to use and apply practical CSS, starting from the absolute basics of CSS and working our way up.

The goal for my content and premium products is simple – make the type of content that I’d like to consume myself. Have a question for me? Feel free to contact me.
