WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) tool and it's by far the simplest, most popular way to create your website or blog.
This explains why WordPress powers more than 30% of all the websites on the internet. That means more than 1 out of 4 websites that you visit are likely powered by WordPress.
This meetup will present a step by step guide on how to create a fully functional website using WordPress within 2 hours.
