Event Details

This course begins with the most basic overview of WordPress – what it is, how it’s used, and why it’s now the most popular web publishing platform available.  We’ll cover the benefits of using WordPress over other content management systems using live demonstrations and case studies.  I will also cover the business opportunities within the WordPress community.  I’ll show how to effectively and quickly build a WordPress-based business either full-time or on the side.

Outcomes:

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Explain what WordPress is and why it offers a distinct advantage to other web platforms
  • Understand the primary features and benefits of WordPress
  • Understand what opportunities exist for employment in the WordPress community
  • Apply the principles of building a freelance WordPress business to their own business (WordPress based or not)
Instructor: Clint Warren began his WordPress career 3 years ago after leaving a job in finance.  He started building websites for local businesses and became actively involved in the local web development & business community.  As his business expanded, he began working as lead developer at Kim Ronemus Design in Westport, CT and was quickly promoted to partner.  His passion for teaching led him to found Illuminate WP, a WordPress educational business geared towards educating WordPress users of all levels.  He is the co-organizer of the Stamford Wordpress Meetup Group, organizer of Fairfield Web Design & Development Meetup Group, organizer of Fairfield County Digital Marketing Group, organizer of Online Marketing Group, and co-organizer of New Haven WordPress Meetup Group.  He regularly speaks on a range of topics, and actively works to help other aspiring web developers grow their business.
