QUESTIONS

It has been asked about the format of Friday’s schedule. Friday is a hands-on introduction to WordPress. A walk-through where users will need a laptop to create a WordPress account and will be taken through the steps of the backend of WordPress.

 While a laptop is not necessary for the tracks it is found that it can be helpful.
Thank you all and the count-down is on!
