Do you want to learn more about the media that you have at your fingertips, like your phone, so that you can integrate it seamlessly with your wordpress site and create dynamic, engaging and beautiful media? Then this workshop is for you.
In this workshop find custom ways to integrate your media (video, text, photos, etc.) into wordpress using a very powerful plugin called Slider Revolution. Slider Revolution is an innovative, responsive WordPress Slider Plugin that displays your content in a beautiful way. Whether it’s a Slider, Carousel, Hero Scene or even a whole Front Page it allows you to create dynamic content for your own site.
Building media into wordpress is the most exciting part of creating a site and this hands-on workshop offers a highly customized experience to the unique needs of the people in the room. It’s geared towards entrepreneurs, creatives, companies and organizations who want to use professional looking media in their wordpress sites.

- A working wordpress site
- Come with a project to work on
*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.
*Why work with me? I have learned from the many mistakes over the past 15 years, and am eager to share my wisdom – and professional tips and tricks – with you.
