Workshop: How to Create a Professional Website with WordPress

I recently presented this workshop on website creation with WordPress, which was organized by the Northern California Translators Association.


Themes, posts, pages, widgets, plug-ins, SQL databases, SSL, … oh my! In this workshop, you will not only learn what these terms mean, you will learn how to build a professional, responsive website from scratch with WordPress, one of the most popular solutions for this task. Attendees can follow along on their computers and optionally create their own (free, with limitations) site on

Prerequisites: While no experience with WordPress or website programming and design knowledge is required, attendees should have some basic familiarity with computers and their setup. Those who want to follow along with their devices and start building their site during the workshop (optional), should bring a device with internet connectivity, an installed browser, and a keyboard (tablets will probably work, too).

The slides for the first part of the workshop are available here.
