SoCal WordPress - Install and Set Up WordPress Workshop

Hands-on WordPress Installation and Set Up Workshop In this workshop, we'll be going step by step through the process of downloading, installing, and setting up a brand new WordPress installation, including recommended settings, and plugins to make your blog or web site easier to update and maintain. Bring a wi-fi enabled laptop to follow along (not required to attend, but it will be helpful). If you would like to install WordPress to your server or shared server during the workshop, please be sure that your server meets the
WordPress minimum requirements. If you don't have a server ready to go, or if you prefer not to install to your server during the workshop, we can install a local copy of WordPress to your laptop. Please have Apache, MySQL, and PHP installed on your laptop before the workshop. If you're a Mac user, I recommend
MAMP. For Windows users, I recommend
WAMP. Contact me if you have any trouble, and I'll do what I can to help. You'll find all the links you need to prepare at
http://purplepen.com/.... There is valet parking available at the hotel for a fee, or free street parking on Loyola Street and other neighborhood streets on the other side of Ralph's which is next door the hotel. Food and drinks will be provided. Please email me any special requests (vegetarian, vegan, etc.).

    Natalie is amazing. The meeting was so professional from the hotel conference room, projector, Natalie's presentation and instruction and I can't forget to mention the incredible refeshments or should I say dinner.
    We learned how to install Wordpress and she shares some tools to drive traffic to our site. I'm looking forward to going to the next meeting.

    This workshop was exactly what I needed to get started with WordPress. Natalie is very knowledgeable and patient and is the perfect person to lead such a group. Now I'm looking forward the the round table discussions that she plans to add to this space!

    I learned about some very important features that I probably would not have learned anywhere else. Thank you Natalie!
