Event description

Mention WordPress and a lot of people say, “you mean the blogging software?” Well, that is how WordPress got its start, but now you can use this amazing (and amazingly free) tool to build complete websites. Better still, you get the kind of content management tools for easily adding to and updating your site like the big boys have. What’s even more remarkable is that you really don’t need to be a tech-head to make this work. So, here’s what you’ll learn after just one day at the WordPress in a Day workshop:

Testimonial for the Class:

I’m running out of superlatives to describe the terrific job you do for School of Visual Concepts. You truly represent the very best of our school, and we’re so grateful to have you lead the WordPress workshop. Thank you so, so much and then some. All the best, Linda Hunt. Co-Director
