    I started blogging on WordPress because I know how to make things function just enough to work for me. The workshop showed me many useful things, some right under my nose. My blog will be better because I took attended.

    This was a great event to get me going on my WordPress blog. Just basic enough so that my 'beginner' questions were answered, plus questions that I didn't know to ask were answered too. Thanks Doug and Brad for putting on this event.

    Brilliant. Brian covered three hours' worth of topics in two hours. He fielded questions, too. Glad I signed up early. Susan

    Thanx for your response. As I have the option of picking up info about WordPress at the monthly meetups, I will have to cancel my seat at tonight's class. How do we go about refunding my money?

    Laura:
    We are doing this class as a special event for Philly TechWeek. However, we do monthly meetups and have many experienced folks who are ready to help others learn. Please feel free to come to our next meetup!

    Laura if you can't make it please let me know ASAP. I can refund your money if you let me know quickly, that way we can open up your seat to someone else

    I signed up, but may be unable to make the WordPress class. Can I transfer my registration to a future WordPress for beginners class? Thanks.

    sometimes they are. But I see you are full anyway. Do you have another one planned for the near future?

    April 25, 2011

  • Doug S.

    @Sue:
    Unfortunately not. Are evenings difficult for you to make?

    @Meredith:
    It's pretty much street parking on Walnut itself but I think there's a Central Parking location just up Second street towards Market. There are also some spots at Front & Market, but that's even further from the location.
