Ladies Learning Code: WordPress for Beginners: Create Your Own WordPress Theme

  • Startup Edmonton 10359 - 104 Street Edmonton Canada (map)

What is Ladies Learning Code?

We're a Canada wide not-for-profit organization providing women, *men and youth the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly technical skills in a social and collaborative way. We're all about showing people that learning to code can be fun!

*Men are welcome to attend (and they do!), but we encourage you to bring an additional female learner where possible

Why WordPress?

Whether you want to start your own blog, 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. In this workshop, we will show you how to install WordPress, what it all means, and of course, how to edit a theme to make it your own.

This workshop has been designed for beginners who are interested in customizing and coding a WordPress theme from scratch. If you are familiar with working with pre-built WordPress themes or templates but want an introduction on how to customize an existing theme or building a theme yourself, you’ve come to the right place! 

Is this workshop for you?

This workshop is designed for learners with some experience using WordPress.com (or have taken our Blogging for Beginners with WordPress workshop) and some very basic HTML & CSS.
