Workshop: How to Create a Professional Website with WordPress

August 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$60 – $100

Themes, posts, pages, widgets, plug-ins, SQL databases, SSL, … oh my! In this workshop, you will not only learn what these terms mean, you will learn how to build a professional, responsive website from scratch with WordPress, one of the most popular solutions for this task. Attendees can follow along on their computers and optionally create their own (free, with limitations) site on WordPress.com.

Prerequisites: While no experience with WordPress or website programming and design knowledge is required, attendees should have some basic familiarity with computers and their setup. Those who want to follow along with their devices and start building their site during the workshop (optional), should bring a device with internet connectivity, an installed browser, and a keyboard (tablets will probably work, too).

About the presenter: Carola F Berger is an ATA-certified (for English into German) patent translator. She currently serves as the Assistant Administrator for ATA’s Science and Technology Division and as NCTA’s Webmaster. Aside from her own website at https://www.CFBtranslations.com, she has helped create or migrate several other WordPress-based websites, including the Science and Technology Division’s website at http://ata-divisions.org/S_TD/, as well as NCTA’s NCTA.org and translorial.com sites.

Registration: Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the workshop minimum participation. Unfortunately, workshops may occasionally have to be cancelled or rescheduled if the confirmed participation in advance is very low. NCTA will not be responsible for any consequential losses to participants arising from this.

Cancellation policy: Refunds are issued only if notice of cancellation is received one week prior to the applicable workshop date. A cancellation fee of $10 is charged for all cancellations.
