This workshop is designed to help you get started in creating and managing a responsive website and/or blog using the WordPress web publishing platform.
WordPress 101 will start with a basic overview of WordPress with discussion on installing it for the first time, how it works, and navigating the back-end dashboard. You will learn how to add content and media through posts and pages, how to add functionality with plugins and widgets, and how to change the look and feel with various themes.
