*Why wordpress?: WordPress is one of the most powerful tools out there and the most recent stats are showing that. Since March 2016, WordPress is actually powering 26.4% of the Web. One of the common misconceptions about WordPress is that since it’s open source, it may not be good enough for big brands. However, some of the most notable big name brands are using WordPress on their websites: The New Yorker, BBC America, Variety, and Sony Music MTV News to name just a few.
I use it because I think it’s the most user-friendly web development platform available that also allows for beautiful professional websites like these, and I like to empower my clients to be able to create, change and interact with their own websites wherever possible. At the same time, wordpress is all about the skill to use it, and without professional training or experience, your site will look novice rather than professional: wouldn’t you agree based on the sites that you’ve seen? There’s a huge range of quality. I am also fluent in many different website development platforms as well, and bring that depth of understanding to web development when relevant.
*Why work with me? I have learned from the many mistakes that I have made making 100s upon 100s of websites over the past 15 years, and am eager to share my wisdom – and professional tips and tricks – with you. I currently work in the industry creating and can spare you the headaches that Ive had. I like learning, am patient with learners, and am a good translator for those of you who get overwhelmed with too much “tech talk.” Come join me in this fun and interactive all day bootcamp, and reap the benefits of my wordpress expertise!
Note: This is a hands-on workshop and geared towards people, companies and organizations who want to set up their own micro-sites over time. Basic computer skills and having created a former site (so you have some past experience of trying it out) is helpful. Because space is limited for the Boot Camp, applications are being considered on a first come first served basis.
