EDC offers workshop on the Basics of WordPress

For those who were wait listed or unable to attend the last session, the San Juan County Economic Development Council will again present a 3-hour workshop on the basics of building a website or blog using WordPress – an ideal platform for businesses and organizations.

The workshop will be held at the San Juan Island Library’s community room on Tuesday, December 17th, from 9 a.m. – noon.  The course material will be presented by Bryan Hoyer, who built his first website in 1995 on realizing the World Wide Web would change the way we promote and inform ourselves.

Bryan is an inventor and successful entrepreneur who spent 25 years in Silicon Valley before moving to the Islands in 2007. The workshop is ideal for budding businesses that need an online presence, for organizations looking to keep their members informed, or for entrepreneurs looking for something more flexible than social media.

WordPress offers fully customizable, free web software that can be used to create a site in almost any format. Participants will learn the fundamentals of producing a website or blog using the WordPress personal publishing system, and each participant will leave the class with a live site up on the web.

Details:  Tuesday, December 17th, from 9 a.m. – noon.

The class will be held in the community room of the San Juan Island Library in Friday Harbor.  Cost:  $20.  **Advance registration and laptop with wireless required**.  Call 360-378-2906 to reserve your space, or email:  info@sanjuansedc.org.
