Building a website can often be expensive and time consuming, but whether you want to start a blog, or an activist website, WordPress allows you to update and create content easily, while allowing for your own style and customization. In this workshop, we will be exploring the world of Wordpress themes, learn how to install and deploy a Wordpress theme or use a free one, including going over domain name and installation, as well as review tips and tricks for creating the best website following accessibility standards. You will walk away with vital tools on how to start or enhance your personal or organizational web presence.
