NXNE workshop: Wordpress for the Starving Artist June 12th

Workshop: Wordpress for the Starving Artist

#NXNEi  @nxnei @FITC #fitcto

Note that this workshop is offered on the pre-event workshop day on June 12th and therefore is only available to those who have 'The Works' or the 'Workshop' ticket.

A full-day workshop designed to introduce non-techies (particularly artists and creative types) to the wonder of Wordpress as a simple and robust platform for creating captivating (and potentially profitable) portfolio websites.

We're going to run the gamut from step 1 to step done -- registering a domain, setting up website hosting, installing and customizing WordPress, and finally publishing your digital works of art.
Learn how to expand the core WordPress functionality with plugins, customize the look-and-feel with a pre-built theme, and tap into your various online and social media services like Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube, Flickr and Dribbble… to name a few.
Finally, market to the broadest audience possible by ensuring that your site is optimized for mobile devices and even make a buck or two as we show you how to sell your work through a simple, secure online shop.
A promise: this workshop will not require you to write a single line of code. Zilch. Nada. But for those that do know a bit of coding, there will be opportunities to add a bit of extra icing on the cake with some deeper customizations.

Requirements:Laptop, Web browser, Image editor (Photoshop, GIMP, etc.) , PayPal account to set up your shop (optional)

Computer Policy:
To keep prices this low, this workshop is bring-your-own-laptop
