WordPress is the perfect internet platform for you, but you are not sure how to begin. WordCamp RI to the rescue! During the Friday workshop sessions, on September 30, there will be two beginner workshops. One is geared to the person who likes to have some hands-on control over the coding of their website and the other workshop focusses on creating what content you need and leaving the maintenance to WordPress itself.
WordPress.ORG Basics: Setup and Installation is being offered by Daniella Norwood of Ella J Designs. Daniella has taught at past WordCamps and is always well-received. You’ll be able to set-up a website in this workshop or make improvements to the site you currently have.
WordPress.COM Basics: Setup and Installation is for the person who wants to create a website, blog or portfolio and does not want to worry about security updates and maintenance. Lydia Rogers will show you how to get your website up and running with the focus on what content you’ll be putting on the internet.
Both Workshops will run for 4 hours, with a break for lunch. Bring your laptop; WiFi will be available.
Before you arrive on Friday morning think about:
What is the purpose of this website/blog?
- Your work/academic portfolio?
- Classroom or nonprofit website?
- Personal blog?
Now there is only one thing left to do – get your ticket to WordCamp RI! Friday September 30 and Saturday October 1 at New England Tech in East Greenwich. Friday is workshop day and Saturday offers you a choice of 45-minute seminars on varying topics.
