WordPress 102 for Haltech

Thanks to everyone who came to my talk today. Here are the slides from that presentation. I would love to hear feedback from this session, including what you’d like to see me do next! Things like intro to the dashboard would probably fall under a WordPress 103.  😉

Please consider:

1. Attending WordCamp Hamilton on June 6, 2015. I’m giving my famous WordPress 101 talk for those who missed my Haltech WordPress 101 session in January. Tickets are going fast!

2. Donating to my WordCamp Tour. I don’t get paid to go, nor do my expenses get covered.

3. Signing up for my mailing list! I’m looking at doing some training courses and going to be launching some exciting stuff. You don’t want to miss this!

Thanks so much to WordPress Hamilton for having me out last night to present an Introduction to Jetpack. There was a great group and we had some interesting questions and insights. Thanks to everyone who came out. Let’s keep the conversation going!

FITC Toronto 2015 – Photos

Here are the photos I took at FITC Toronto over the last few days. These are only a small section of what amazing events took place and the inspiration that it gave me. The write up will be done in the next few days. Consider this your teaser. Hoping to share some of the photos that one of my students shot over the course of the event. Look forward to those too!


WordPress 102 Session

I had the pleasure of being a guest on the WPWaterCooler broadcast on Monday, March 23, 2015 where the topic was “Teaching WordPress”. A big thanks to the organizers for having me on the show!

While most of us agreed on the majority of the content for WordPress 101, the content for a 102 session varied greatly. Some of the instructors got into theme development and others would talk about more of the administrative functions. Some would include the later as part of their “101” sessions, especially if it was a full day course.

I do a lot of WordPress 101 talks, not full courses and my question for everyone is: What would you like to see in MY WordPress 102 session? I really would appreciate the feedback, especially for those that have seen my WordPress 101 talks at Haltech, WordCamp Chicago (video), WordCamp New York, Women In ITM (WITM) and others.

Here’s the video from the WPWaterCooler (EP. 128):

 

WordPress 101 for Women In Information Technology Management

Here’s the first part of the presentation that I gave last night to Women in Information Technology Management at Ryerson University. The second half was more of demo that I’m hoping to document a little better and turn into a full course. Thanks to those who attended and supported the event. Awesome time!
