2018 Workshop Series
WordPress is a web development toolset powering almost a third of the internet. It is used for big-traffic professional websites but is surprisingly friendly to beginners. Faculty, staff and students use WordPress to create and maintain websites for offices, projects, blogs, and professional portfolios.
In this workshop, Prof. Ben Dunkle helps participants get into the basics of building and maintaining websites and blogs. Learn how to author attractive, functional content on the web, and develop skills useful for presenting yourself, your work, and your organizations to the world.
