Beyond the Pitch
WordPress 101: Start Building Your Own Website Now
Part of our TIGER Workshops series:
WordPress powers 25% of all websites on the internet. Maybe you’ve been using other online website builders and looking to take the next step, or maybe you’ve never created a website at all.
If you’ve ever considered WordPress but thought it was too intimidating, Darin Young will show you how to get started. Darin will go over installation, navigating the interface, installing essential plugins, and creating your first page.
This workshop will be geared toward the WordPress beginner, so don’t be afraid if you have no WordPress experience at all.
