What you'll learn in this web design class:

Wordpress is awesome, but often misunderstood. Is it a blogging platform? A CMS? Should you buy a custom theme or develop your own? Wordpress.com vs. Wordpress.org?

In this course you’ll develop a custom site starting from scratch. Basically, you’ll take a static front-end HTML/CSS template and do all the necessary magic to have that site running live and dynamic using Wordpress.

Afterwards, your clients will be able to edit content themselves, manage the site’s navigation, and leverage an array of existing plug-ins that will help take the site from a simple blog to a fully functional CMS. All customizable; all on Wordpress.

Takeaways
  • Understand the capabilities of Wordpress as a blogging platform and CMS.
  • Learn basic HTML and CSSDevelop a custom, complete website from scratch
  • Learn how to customize themes, including header/navigation/body/footers
  • Understand how to leverage the Wordpress plug-in and theme libraries
Prereqs & Preparation
  • To get the most out of the workshop or to work on your own project, either set up a local server on your computer or have a hosted domain with WordPress installed. Otherwise, students will also be able to use and share the WordPress installation and website that will be used in the boot camp.
  • This workshop is intended for beginners. Please bring a laptop to class.
