If you are part of the WordPress community in Canada, chances are you’ve either heard of—or are about to hear of—WPTeach. In existence for only two years, WPTeach and its proprietor, Al Davis, has quickly made itself an important hub for all things WP: platform news, tutorials, event announcements, user discussion, theme and plugin reviews, community news and more.
Now, we’re very happy to announce that Al is bringing something a little different to the table, and has chosen to let us here in Montreal have the first shot at it. On October 19, Al will host a workshop for a limited number of beginner-level students to receive hands-on instruction with WordPress. This six-hour intensive class is designed to make you “a confident and competent WordPress user in a single day”—it stems from the curriculum of his Intro to WordPress course at George Brown College where he’s been teaching for the past three years.
The content that Al promises to deliver to his students in this workshop is too extensive to list here, but you can read all about here. We know Al enough to know that if he promises it, he WILL deliver, so you can register with confidence! You will get your money’s worth in terms of WP instruction—and more than a few cat jokes, as well!
Al has been co-organizer of two very successful WordCamp Toronto events and of the Meetup groups Toronto WP Group and Toronto WP Developers Group. In addition to WPTeach, he has written for Torque, the new publication of WPEngine, and WPMU. As a speaker at many WordCamps (North Canton, Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Hamilton, Ottawa), he’s developed a reputation for being an excellent teacher with a fun, no-nonsense approach to working with WordPress—so much so that, at his most recent speaking appointment, the room was filled to overflowing and attendees lined the hallway adjacent to be able to hear his talk!
With registration limited to only 12, you won’t have to listen in from the hallway. You’ll have Al’s full attention—and expertise—all day. Almost makes us wish we were beginners again so we could sign up ourselves! For further information and to register for this workshop, you can sign up here.
