Hello! My name is Brad Schiff, and I’ll be teaching advanced web development, specifically in one very popular framework, WordPress. The ultimate goal of this course is to get you comfortable with and excited about the world’s number one CMS. (And to learn what a CMS even is). This class will contain NO CODING. You won’t become a developer at the end of three weeks, but you will be able to create and manipulate your own websites.
What you will do in the course:
Here’s how I imagine each lesson in our course going:
- Spend the first chunk of class (let’s say 20-30 minutes) learning about whatever we’ll be doing that day.
- Spend the next chunk (let’s say 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes) doing what we learned.
- Finally wrap-up and have time to work on additional optional work.
Who should take this course:
Anyone can benefit from WordPress knowledge. Many employers now would like to see familiarity with WordPress on employee’s resumes. What’s more, entrepreneurs can easily market their business using the knowledge that we teach in this class. If you want to be able to launch a website and customize it to your needs this is the class for you.
What you will need to bring to the course:
Your own laptop. If it’s a Windows machine, it should be running at least Windows 7 and have 2 gigabytes of internal memory. If it is a Mac, it should be running El Capitan and also have at least 4 gigabytes of internal memory. Of course you will also want to bring a willingness to learn.
What you will learn in this course:
During the six-week course (two nights a week for three weeks) you will:
- Learn to choose a theme, install plugins, and put content online.
- Learn to launch your own site.
- Learn about the resources you need to launch a site that is clean, modern-looking, and mobile friendly.
Length: This class will take place twice each week in the evenings from 6-9 PM. It will last for three weeks. It starts July 11th.
Cost: The course costs $275.
Ticket Type: Purchase a spot in the course online. You do not need to bring a receipt.
Course Location: At the Shasta Venture Hub. 4300 Caterpillar Road, Redding, CA 96003
Course instructor: Brad Schiff
I started my career right here in Redding back in 2005. Because I had learned HTML & CSS, I was able to get my foot in the door at a local marketing agency building websites. Since then I’ve done work for some of the biggest brands in the world and have led training sessions for Fortune 100 companies.
