WE'RE BACK ON!
Due to an incredible outpouring of affection from the community and a desire to continue our momentum, our monthly Saturday hands-on May meetup will proceed. Note the new location, courtesy of Valencia Short Stays. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CHAIRS!

WHAT WE'LL DO
I often hear the frustration of new site builders who can't figure out why their home page doesn't resemble the theme's demo. We'll address this dilemma, continue talking core concepts for building your website the right way using WordPress, which powers 1 of every 3 websites in the world.

We'll talk about child themes, local or staging environments, content and accessibility best practices and repurposing your WordPress content on your social media channels.

We're giving away some free swag, grab a snack and share WordPress knowledge. We'll also briefly look back at WordCamp Orange County, held April 27-28th.

OVERVIEW
Learn WordPress the right way in this series of lessons in Santa Clarita. This monthly series will be an opportunity for you to learn WordPress from the ground up. Instructor-led topics will walk you through best practices for going from idea to online and the steps in-between.
Geared towards beginning-to-intermediate level WordPress enthusiasts, this class will address more advanced topics and techniques as we progress.
