WordPress for Designers 


This instructor-led class is for people who want to use WordPress. It's for web designers who'd like to get to know WordPress a little better -- or a lot better. It's for writers who have been asked to contribute content to a WordPress site, but haven't been shown how to use the software. It's for server administrators who'd like to know more about this little CMS that users are always asking them to install. It's for Drupal developers who suddenly need to write a WordPress plugin for a client this week. If you're familiar with PHP or MySQL, or if you've used another open source content management system in the past, great!

This class will take you from novice to professional. By the end, you'll know not only how to manage and customize your own site, but how to contribute your innovations back to the community by submitting plugins and themes to the central repository at wordpress.org. If you've never touched PHP before, that's OK. Understanding arrays, for example, might be necessary if you want to write your own plugin, but not if you want to install the software and configure your site with plugins and themes. And if you do want to learn more about code, WordPress is a great place to start.
