About this event

Welcome to the Wonderful World of WordPress!

Have you ever wondered what all of the hype is about WordPress?

You’re not alone. The hype is well-deserved. What started out in 2003 as a blogging platform has evolved into a full-fledged Content Management System (CMS). WordPress is currently the most prominent CMS in the world! WordPress is a free, open-source software application that you can use to build websites and blogs with little or minimal knowledge of web coding.

In this 90 minute class, we will compare WordPress.org with WordPress.com and discover the key attributes of shared and managed hosting plans. We’ll learn about installing and configuring basic settings in WordPress, choosing and installing a theme, adding new pages and posts, creating nav menus, working with widgets, installing plugins, creating child themes, and customizing themes. 

Gather your questions and bring them to class!

Prerequisites and Preparation:

For this introductory-level class, it will be mostly presentation-style so that you walk away with a comprehensive understanding of WordPress and its attributes. We will also discuss our upcoming WordPress cohort (October 9 and 16) and the benefits of joining this learning experience!

Girl Develop It is focused on providing opportunities for women to learn web and software development, but our classes and events are open to all genders and identities. We are dedicated to providing a welcoming and comfortable environment for all to learn to code and every attendee is expected to uphold our Code of Conduct (http://www.girldevelopit.com/codeofconduct).
