Description

Join us on Tuesday, April 9th for a full-day workshop led by Kyle Cotter, owner of Cotter Interactive and formerly of EllisLab, Inc., the makers of ExpressionEngine.

With almost a half-decade of experience with ExpressionEngine, Kyle will teach you everything you need to know to build a fully functioning website with EE.



Building Flexible Sites with ExpressionEngine

Content management systems seem to be a dime a dozen in the web industry as of late. Whether you're only comfortable with HTML and CSS, or you've looked at other content management systems, this one-day workshop will show you why ExpressionEngine should be a tool you keep in your tool belt.

A CMS should be just that; a tool; one that adapts to your needs, not the other way around. The flexibility ExpressionEngine offers allows you to focus on structuring your site and designing without limitation. This workshop will provide a beginner course for getting started with and using ExpressionEngine.
