Why learn about WordPress?

Whether you build your own site, or your company website is run on it, WordPress allows you to update and create content easily, while allowing for your own style and customization. In this workshop, we will show you how to install WordPress, what it all means, and of course, how to edit a theme to make it your own.

This workshop has been designed for somewhat savvier beginners who are interested in customizing and coding a WordPress theme from scratch. If you are familiar with working with pre-built WordPress themes or templates but want an introduction on how to customize an existing theme or building a theme yourself, you’ve come to the right place! (If you’ve never touched WordPress before or are not very techy, you might want to wait for our “Blogging With WordPress” workshop to come around again.)

Who is this for?
Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.

This workshop is designed for beginners, but we recommend those with a slightly higher technical skill level only for this course. Best for designers or junior developers, who want to get to know customization on WordPress.

Note: If you do not have a laptop to use during the duration of the workshop, we have a very limited quantity that we can loan out. The option to borrow a laptop will be included in your order form when registering.
