I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching a Super 1-Day Workshop – WordPress for the Professional Photographers of America on May 13. While driving to a Professional Photographers Guild of Houston meeting a couple of months ago, I realized that I might be able to help fellow photographers with all the lessons I’ve learned since learning how to use UNIX and Fortran way back in 1986.
According to Prof. Carl Sagan, a googol was 10 to the 100th power (or, 1 followed by 100 zeros). I’m not sure she’ll remember, but a high school friend and I wrote one out on calculator tape ;). I still remember when a fellow graduate student showed me one of the very first web pages — a simple listing of what else — beer labels. Now, a Google search results in 2,380,000 results. My very first websites were written in a text editor. I remember Altavista (a very interesting read) and Infoseek. I guess this is my way of dating myself :). I graduated to Dreamweaver for building websites sometime after 2000, and last year rediscovered WordPress when looking around for a redesign of my photography website. I had set up WordPress for others in the past, but only as a blogging platform. It has become so much more since then.
If you’re a photographer who would like to learn how to set up a WordPress site with (hopefully) hands-on construction, please join me on Friday, May 13 2016 at the The United Way Building , 50 Waugh Drive, Houston, TX 77007. You can sign up on the PPA website. See you there!
