WordPress WorkShop - 10/28

Below is information on next week's WordPress Workshop, to be taught by Richard Geasey.

Date / Time - next Wednesday, 10/28, from 10:30am - 12:30pm
Place - SVC, Room 204 (so up a level from where we normally meet)

To provide a basic intro to WordPress and how it can be used as a tool to create an online portfolio (and more).

-Difference between and .com, and why choose one versus the other
-Obtaining a great domain name
-Selecting a theme
-Installation and hosting
-Pages versus posts
-Plug Ins
-On going maintenance and updating
Richard figures he can cover these topics in 90 min, using samples, and we'll have approx. 30 min at the end for Q&A and possibly hands-on help.

Prerequisites: NONE
We realize everyone may be at various levels of familiarity with WordPress, from "I have no clue" to "I'm close to getting it, but just need help."

Cost: NONE

Materials: While there is no need to bring a computer, I'm going to bring my laptop. The SVC has Wi-Fi we can tap into. And if time allows, we might be able to look at some stuff hands on.

Disclaimer: While we're at the SVC, and they're providing space, this is not an SVC-endorsed course.
