Ladies Learning Code: WordPress for Beginners

Ladies Learning Code is bringing back their WordPress for Beginners workshop to Startup Edmonton on Saturday, March 29th!

Whether you want to start your own blog, or your company website is run on it, WordPress allows you to update and create content easily, while allowing for your own style and customization. You don’t need to be technical to use it, but it can be really powerful if you get your hands dirty and work with the code. In this workshop, we will show you how to install WordPress, what it and all the files mean, and of course, how to edit a theme to make it your own.

This workshop has been designed for beginners who are interested in customizing and coding a WordPress theme from scratch. If you are familiar with working with pre-built WordPress themes or templates but want an introduction on how to customize an existing theme or building a theme yourself, you’ve come to the right place! This is also a great starting point for HTML/CSS developers to get their feet wet with developing for WordPress!

Ladies Learning Code: Intro to Photoshop

Ladies Learning Code’s Edmonton Chapter is back on February 22, 2014, returning to Startup Edmonton, Ladies Learning Code will be running their Intro to Photoshop workshop. Tickets are available here: llcphotoshopyegfeb22.eventbrite.ca

“No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to developing your technical skills, you’ve probably realized that Microsoft Paint just isn’t going to cut it forever. Whether you need to crop or resize a photo, want to create a logo for your blog, or have a more significant design project in mind, at some point, you’re going to need an introduction to Photoshop. At this workshop, you’ll learn to use Photoshop and a bit of Illustrator (plus as much design theory as we can reasonably fit in).”

What is Photoshop?

Photoshop is a graphic software program, by Adobe, that most graphic designers use to create, edit and manipulate graphics and images for use on the web.

How can it benefit using WordPress?

Whether you want to create a logo for your blog, tweak and edit a featured image, make a banner or graphical call-out (really – the options are as versatile as your creativity allows) – understanding how to use the basic options in Photoshop can do a lot for your WordPress website!

The WordPress Edmonton Directory Launches

So you’re planning your next big website project but you’re not sure if you need a full service web shop, a freelance developer, a contract designer or maybe just a consultant to get you started. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Web projects have many different moving parts and we’d like to help you find the best person or people to help your project run smoothly. That’s why we’ve created the WordPress Edmonton Professional Directory. The Directory is a fluid list of current WordPress shops, developers, designers and consultants working in and around the Edmonton area.

We’re going to try and keep this list as updated as possible and do our due diligence to make sure everyone on the list is legit. However, we take no responsibility if you hire someone from the Directory and the project goes wrong. That, my friend, is your baby to deal with. That being said, if the project goes smashingly right (which I’m sure it will), we will accept great praises and cases of beer for our efforts 🙂

Check out the WordPress Edmonton Professional Directory or submit yourself into the directory using our Directory Submission Form.

Ladies Learning Code: Intro to HTML and CSS

Ladies Learning Code’s Edmonton Chapter starts up again on January 25, 2014 by offering their Intro to HTML and CSS workshop via WITT (Women in Technology and Trades) at NAIT. Tickets are available here: llchtmlcssyegjan25.eventbrite.ca

“If you’re looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating email newsletters, or even blogging!”

What is HTML and CSS?

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and CSS stands for Cascading Stylesheets, both of which are the core programming languages used to build web pages. HTML code provides the framework of the website, while CSS code helps to style the visual layout.

How can it benefit using WordPress?

Basic understanding of HTML and CSS can give you additional options when formatting blog posts, template pages, and even plugins. If you were to create your own theme or provide custom designs to your stylesheets, you need HTML and CSS programming knowledge. You can also extend your knowledge for working with WordPress with Ladies Learning Code’s WordPress for Beginners workshop later this spring!

Already know HTML and CSS?

Could you be a mentor for our upcoming workshop? If you are a local web developer with the HTML and CSS brains, take a look at the information below to get in touch for mentoring for our workshop.
