Intro to WordPress

Free Seminar

What do the NY Times, Jay-Z and Fail Blog all have in common? They all use WordPress! WordPress is the most widely used blogging and website creation platform. It is free, open source, and easy to use. Any skill level from experienced to novice can get a website or blog up and running in minutes.

WordPress can do much more then just help you publish a blog. WordPress is also a powerful means of managing your website. Instead of manually coding each page of your site by hand, you can customize a template and fill it with content from an easy to use interface. Want to make an e-commerce store or optimize your site for Google? Thanks to huge community of WordPress developers, there is a wide variety of templates and plugins (free or paid) to choose from.

This free class is intended for all skill levels. Whether you are interested in just starting a blog, or using it to manage a website, we’ll show you how WordPress can help you! It’s also the perfect way to get started before diving into one of our hands-on WordPress classes, or learning more with our workbooks.
