Workshop Goal

This is the third run of this class.  This means that in addition to this class being free, I will be asking folks to provide feedback on what can be done to improve this workshop.  This class will remain free at Fresh Workshops.


There will be a live screenshare of my desktop as we install Joomla on our computers along with a phone conference.

We will be installing a webserver locally on your computer, talking about best practices and working in phpMyAdmin, MySQL.  Cpanel is a popular control panel for website hosting accounts.  Cpanel will be discussed but not used so don't worry if you don't have a domain or hosting space.  This workshop is to learn the basics of installing Joomla.
