The WordPress courses at Google campus has been going almost every month since June 2012. No matter how much experience you can gain throughout the years, you are always surprised by the questions asked by some of the attendees.
WordPress for beginners course
This is a beginners course. If you are new to using computers then you are literally trying to run before you can walk. Not only will you have difficulty following the steps but there is a chance you will be overwhelmed and simply give up. The key is to first get used to hand.
WordPress Training Courses
This is not a talk. It is a hands-on WordPress course where you bring your own laptop and charger, build your pages and posts, menu, set up a theme, install plugins, add content to the sidebar, footer and pages. You do it all and what’s more, you do it alongside like-minded people. Some are startups, some are small businesses and some are complete beginners.
Online WordPress Classes
Are these really helpful? Can you learn everything by yourself simply by sitting with your laptop and switch between a video and your WordPress dashboard to try out the new things you’re learning? If you’re not in London that’s completely understandable however if you are in London then there is no excuse – bring your laptop over to Google campus and start learning step-by-step how to build a fast loading WordPress website.
This course is free to attend however you would need to sign up to a web hosting package and install the self-hosted version of WordPress. Remember there are 2 versions of WordPress: the one at wordpress.com

WordPress Course Attendees
There was a mixed bunch as usual – some were sent by companies to learn about WordPress so that they can manage it better while others were individuals planning to build ecommerce websites and sell products. There was an individual who already had a WordPress website and wanted to learn how to manage it better. After the course I spent some time and helped figure out how to switch between the same page when using a translation plugin. You learn new things everyday.
Will be added shortly.
