The Details

 


Whether you want to start your own blog, 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.

I became really interested in tech a few years ago when I started working with archaeologists and historians, building digital platforms for their research and projects. I switched into tech this year to learn development, and hope to be help and teach others to build their own tech solutions!
