With 20% of the web running on WordPress, it's no surprise that we're WordPress fans!
Join Girl Develop It for an introductory look into all things WordPress. We will show you the basics of creating a WordPress website, then customizing it to fit your needs. We'll learn about Themes, Plugins and Widgets and how to spot a good or bad one. We will publish posts and learn about the types of content we can publish. Most importantly, our instructors and TA's will be here to answer any questions you may have along the way. You'll leave with an understanding of the basics and an ability to publish your own WordPress site.
Note: You do not need to have an existing WordPress site in order to attend.
Minimum enrollment is 10 students.
Snacks & drinks will be provided by Atomic Object.
