Society of Work is a downtown collaborative workspace.Â WordPress is software that allows people to create websites. It currently powers more than 60 million websites.Â
Justin Kropp, who works for Automattic, the parent company of WordPress, will conduct the series, Fitzgerald said.Â
Kropp isÂ user experience designer, andÂ he designs user interfaces within the context of data analysis and user research.
The workshop is geared toward individuals or entrepreneurs looking to establish an online presence.Â
“The WordPress workshop is a great entry point for anyone looking to create a websiteâ€”personal, business or nonprofit,” she also said.
Fitzgerald said that WordPress is a powerful and flexible content management system.Â
“[It’s] used for [everything from] independent blogs and small businesses to news outlets like CNN and TechCrunch,” she said. “The teacher for the class … works for WordPress and is located here in Chattanooga. He is a great resource working for one of the most respected tech companies in the country.”
