WordPress Bootcamp with BobWP: Get the Site You've Always Wanted with the StudioPress Genesis Theme
Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Spend a day with Bob and review the basics of WordPress, learn how to even get more out of your website or blog, and build the site of your dreams using Genesis from Studio Press and one of its child themes.
Discover why Mashable calls Genesis the 'best of the best' among premium themes and why 65,000 online publishers (and counting) are using it to highlight their content. Genesis is recognized for its:

• clean, search engine optimized-code- with smart architecture and up-to-date, fully optimized code, your content will be quickly and easily found by the search engines
