This meetup is geared for an audience with little or no knowledge about website design or WordPress. This session is conducted through an interactive discussion while performing a hands-on demonstration. The purpose of our hands-on demonstration is to build a new website from scratch using the Divi Theme from Elegant Themes.

Hands-on Class by Doing It!
This session will also include an introduction to WordPress by jumping right in using WordPress to build a new website. Our approach is to explain each action by using the WordPress menu functions while performing practical hands-on activities. The learning experience of this meetup is focus on Doing with an accompanied interactive discussion, instead of just presenting a PowerPoint slide lecture. More Doing and less lecture – interactive session.
