WordPress Camp

WordPress logo

WordPress is one of the most robust open-source blogging and content manager software applications available. With support for PC and Mac users, in addition to an amazing user community that supports fellow users and develops amazing plugins, WordPress should be at the top of your list of applications to consider implementing for your own business as well as for your clients.

It’s not necessary to feel intimidated by interacting with WordPress. Let’s go to WordPress Camp!

In a series of four, one-hour, live training sessions AVP Instructor and WordPress expert Nora Rubinoff will take you step-by-step through each component of the software. Nora will show you first hand how to tackle the fundamentals and the mysteries of WordPress. That’s right, in less than four hours you can be up and running with your own WordPress site—including a year of hosting and a domain name!

If you’re a visual learner like I am then you’re tired of listening to hours and hours of audio recordings that claim to teach you all you need to know about WordPress, but don’t really SHOW you a thing. In this one of a kind boot camp we’ll actually show you a WordPress site in real-time to help you find your way through the maze. There really is a light at the end of the tunnel—and it’s not a train!
