WordPress Class at FIT

Have you heard about WordPress?

If you haven’t you are:

  • Not living on Planet Earth.
  • Not having any fun in your life.
  • Not reading this page which was made using WordPress.

WordPress is one of the most versatile and user-friendly web publishing applications. It has been enjoying rapid and widespread use over the past few years. Find out how easy it is to make web sites, change or create themes, add plugins and expand your offerings to clients – or maybe you just want to create a new web site for yourself.

Do all of this without having to know a lick of code!! How crazy is that?!?!?

Prerequisites? If you can turn on your computer and use a web browser and a word processor, you are good to go.

Here is the home page I use for the class. Download the syllabus if you’d like (right column).

Learning WP is a skill that you can hardly live without in today’s world whether you are just making a web site or are going to work for others who want you to know how to work with a Content Management System.

PC vs Mac

Guest Blogger: Instructor Walter Atkinson

The difference between PC and Mac computers is not at all like it used to be.  Both have similar specs. It is all about what is inside the computer. I teach on both PC and Mac.

Macs have a better operating system and are fantastic for
2D applications, music recording and all the Apple apps.

Quality PCs  are fantastic for 2D applications, music recording and are more powerful with 3D applications.

The Mac computer structure does not favor 3D. That is why gamers and 3D artists usually use PCs.

I use a Falcon Northwest PC. They are considered one of the top computer makers in the world. Falcon is featured at all the top technology shows. And ironically, you never heard of them.

Other than  cntrl = apple and alt = opt. The interface is similar with some difference, but easily adaptable.

PCs and Mac computers are not at all like they used to be.

Students should learn to be be great with PC’s and Mac’s. There is very little difference and companies use both.
