About this event

Concrete5 is an awesome, open source CMS (content management system) that makes building websites intuitive & easy!

Concrete5 gets you out of the backend and into your content, where it lives… on your actual pages! We will go over the fundamentals of how to edit content in an in-context environment, and how to connect our sites to the community marketplace to add functionality and themes. We'll also explore the basics of how to style your pages and harness attributes for data-driven sites. 

You are not required to have an installation of Concrete5 to take this class as we will provide a shared install. If you’re interested in working with your own installation for the class, feel free to use the following installer from Bitnami to create an install on your local machine:

Snacks & drinks will be provided by Atomic Object.
