On Saturday, we had our first WordPress workshop in the Startit Center of Novi Sad. The workshops were conducted in 3 groups of ~30 people and each group had a dedicated time slot of 2 hours. We managed to cover several topics:
The Beginning of WordPress
I shared the story of WordPress beginnings, B2/cafelog, and the post that started it all. I spoke about Matt Mullenweg, Mike Little, GPL, and how a few dedicated people devoted to the same cause can make great things happen.
WordPress.com and WordPress.org
We also covered the differences between Automattic’s WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
Creating a WordPress.com site
I guided the attendees through the process of creating a WordPress.com account and afterward, I demonstrated how to create a site from scratch by using different WordPress editors, Gutenberg blocks, and Customizer options. Afterward, the attendees worked on a few exercises I previously created and they launched their shiny new sites.
After the workshops, several people approached me and they mentioned it would be super cool to have a video of the whole process I used when I created a WordPress.com site from scratch.
So, here’s the video 🙂
I’d also like to highlight one of the workshop attendees, Relja, who published the details of both the initial talk and the first workshop on his website!
