Being able to create your own website and design it to your liking will no longer seem like an incredible feat after attending this short introductory workshop. In 3 hours, you will be given a comprehensive overview of how modern-looking websites are professionally created using the free open source software WordPress.
If you’re unsure whether to hire a web design agency or develop your website yourself, this complimentary workshop will provide you with a clearer picture on the web development process and help you make the best decision given your circumstances.
Note: This is not a selling session for our 3-Day WordPress Course. It is angled at providing you with a taste of how creating a website feels like, and to help you decide whether to proceed on with a full 3 days course, or to outsource the project to a web design agency.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What is WordPress?
A: WordPress.com is managed hosting on a subscription-based model with WordPress while WordPress.org is self-hosted and open source. You can sign up for a freemium account on WordPress.com and get started creating a website immediately. You may be prompted to go premium depending on what features you prefer to have. Premium features include regular auto backup, one-to-one support, and customisation.
On WordPress.org, you download the entire WordPress core files to your computer and upload it to your own server. From here on, you are entirely responsible for managing and maintaining your website. There are no freemium or premium models by WordPress and you are free to customise your website without any payment to WordPress.

Q: Why is this course free?
A: We have gotten many requests to do a free preview workshop of our 3-day WordPress Website Creation course. However, we felt that a free preview would not be very beneficial or productive for attendees coming all the way down to hear us selling our full course.
Therefore, we have decided to take a different approach and incorporate some practical hands-on segments into a complimentary 3-hour introductory workshop.
All we require is a fully refundable $20 commitment fee. The refund will be initiated upon successful completion of the workshop.
Q: Do I have to bring my own laptop?
A: For your convenience, Windows laptops will be provided at the venue by our academy at no cost. You may prefer to bring your own laptops too as there is no need to install any software on the computers.
Q: Do I need to know how to code?
A: No, you will not need any coding skills for this workshop.
