Why Wordpress? 
Whether you want to start your own blog or website, or your company website is run on it, WordPress allows you to update and create content easily, while allowing for your own style and customization. You don’t need to be technical to use it, but it can be really powerful if you get your hands dirty and work with the code. In this workshop, we're going to show you how to install WordPress locally with ServerPress, what it all means, and of course, how to edit a theme to make it your own by using WordPress' PHP template files and some CSS.

Is this workshop for you? 
If you are very familiar with Wordpress.org (e.g. you are comfortable with PHP and have launched or customized Wordpress-powered sites in the past), this workshop may not be for you. 

Please note that this is NOT our WordPress.com Blogging workshop, but our WordPress.org Coding workshop.

Special Requirements: Bring your own laptop and power cord, download required software and learner material from your Eventbrite ticket confirmation email prior to the workshop.
