During the 2nd WordPress Workshop in Novi Sad (here’s the link to the first one #), the attendees worked on completing the remaining tasks I prepared for mastering WordPress.com site creation. The videos of the solutions can be found here.
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:
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.
The WordPress Workshops in Novi Sad kicked off on Saturday, September 28th. I was overwhelmed by the number of people that showed up 🙂 I expected 15-25 people total but 170signed up and around 120 showed up at the intro talk this Saturday.
During the intro talk, I shared my WordPress story with the attendees and I gave a short overview of all the areas which will be covered during the workshops. Afterwards, we worked on creating Slack accounts on the official WordPress Serbia Slack which we’ll use for further communication. There will be three groups created and the workshops will be conducted in two-hour timeslots for each group. The workshops as a whole will last for seven Saturdays during the course of three months.
I’ll be uploading the workshops material after each class on both my website (in English) and on Startit.rs (in Serbian).
I am pleased to announce that I’ll be holding WordPress workshops in the Startit Center in Novi Sad starting from September 28th. The workshops will last for 3 months and they will introduce the attendees to the wide array of WordPress topics. The workshops will be conducted in Serbian and everyone is welcome to attend them – no previous knowledge is required but it’s necessary to register.
