WordCamp Portland New User Workshop

This week­end is fast approach­ing and it’ll be filled with Word­Camp Portland.

In addi­tion to the Word­Camp we’re run­ning a new user work­shop on Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 16th from 9am to 4pm. We did this at Word­Camp San Fran­cisco and it was a blast. Over 60 peo­ple went from total new­bies to know­ing every­thing about pub­lish­ing with Word­Press. Now, you can join them.

If you’ve always wanted to start blog­ging but never knew how, now’s your chance. We’ll walk you through each step of the process and by the end of the day you’ll have a great look­ing site you can take with you.

Or, if you’re one of those peo­ple who is always the default “guy/gal who knows about com­put­ers” in your social cir­cle you can use the work­shop as a way to get all your friends set up with sites. We’ll do the work so you don’t have to. :)

By the end of the work­shop you’ll not only know how to pub­lish and cus­tomize your site but you’ll be pre­pared to get the most out of the two days of uncon­fer­ence ses­sions as well. You might even think of a ses­sion topic to pitch yourself.
