WordPress Preflight

March 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


So you need a website and you’ve heard about this thing called WordPress… Now what? WordPress is the dominant player in the web building space, and gives you a fantastic platform for building a website and blog.

Content Academy’s WordPress Preflight in-person workshop will introduce you to setting up a WordPress website for the first time. Get up to speed as we explore how WordPress became the #1 open-source program for publishing content to the web.

In this workshop we show you:

Really, what is WordPress?
Introduction to Web Content Management
How WordPress became the dominant player for building sites
Web production before WordPress
Where and how to set up a site
Settle the issue of WordPress.com vs WordPress.org
Web Hosting and Domain Names
Negotiate the admin dashboard controls

How WordPress works for you

The web demands content. Your WordPress website is the tool to create content.

Our workshops offer more than a lecture. Our experienced instructors provide you with opportunities to learn; by doing so you can apply your knowledge. Because we limit our participant size to eight people, you receive exclusive attention so you’ll achieve your personal goals. Arrive prepared to be involved and join the discussion throughout the two hour session.
