Cincinnati WordPress One Day Crash Course

Cincinnati WordPress Bootcamp for Graphics Designers & Creative Types – Beginners welcome too

Don’t get left behind by advancing technologies in web software. In the old days it was Dreamweaver and Flash and now its HTML, CSS, and Javascript. If these words sounds too Greek for you, then this is a good time to take my web design classes. I get many calls from graphic designers who are asked by their employers to update their WordPress sites. And also calls from designers who said their clients want them to create a business site for them. To sign up for this workshop, please go here.
