"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time."

NOTE: This virtual self-study group will be led by Vickie Comrie, Senior Percolator. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator and giving back to the Boston PHP community.


This virtual self-study group will focus on WordPress. The pdf book + theme + updates we will be using are from The Tao of WordPress.


Self-Study Group Format

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant obtains a copy of the same pdf book: The Tao of WordPress.


• Each participant commits to read one chapter per week, complete the exercises and post links to your completed work.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter. Each comment will receive a response. Participants will also receive a weekly group e-mail update.


• Each participant who completes the book is recognized on the Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment.

Note: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have access to the book, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
