Learning WordPress for beginners

A few reasons to attend my workshops.

I have an ugly website. I want to change it.
My site looks outdated & ugly.
I can’t update my website without paying big bucks to a developer.
My website looks horrible on the phone.
I am not getting any traffic to my site.
My competition is getting all the business.
I tried learning WordPress with video tutorials
and I still don’t get it.

Then you came to the right place.

My name is Elle Gamboa and I’m a full-time WordPress developer and WordPress evangelist. I have been using WordPress for almost 8 years now and I have taught many staff members at many non-profits and corporations from coast to coast. My clients also include Univ. of Southern California ,Loyola University, and numerous travel & food bloggers.

I am a big supporter of WordCamps and I had the incredible oppurtunity to meet Matt Mullenweg in person at the San Francisco WordCamp a few years ago. Matt is a very friendly and approachable person. I told Matt, WordPress changed my life. So what is WordCamp ?

In a nutshell, a WordCamp is a conference devoted to all things WordPress. It’s an event organized by volunteers and designed to bring people in a certain area together to discuss and learn about WordPress, network, collaborate on projects, and much more.
