Do I need to know how to code?
The great thing about WordPress is that you do not need to know how to code in order to customize a theme. Having basic HTML and CSS knowledge will be helpful as we’ll be teaching you a few customization tricks, but not necessary. If you consider yourself a tech-savvy person, you’ll do great. If you’re concerned about the course tech requirements, contact us and we’d be happy to discuss!
What technical requirements do I need for the workshop?
A reliable computer, camera, microphone, and internet connection are required for this course. Classes will be taught via Zoom, so make sure to have the latest Zoom app installed before class starts.
*Note: this is a hands-on course and we will be working in WordPress during class. You will need to join Zoom from a desktop computer, not a cell phone.
Do you have a VA program?
We honor the women and men who have served our country, and are offering a limited number of free spots in our course to Vets. Contact us for more information.
