It's time again for the LUV Beginner's Workshop. Come along on 20th of November. Talk: "WordPress Introduction" by Kathy Reid

We intend to cover things like:

  • How should you partition your machine? Should you use LVM?
  • installing various linux distributions;
  • tweaking and configuring your system;
  • automatic backups;
  • home networking, including wireless;
  • setting up specific applications;
  • using specific applications;
  • the Linux problem you're having

In addition, Kathy Reid will be giving a WordPress Introduction. WordPress is an opensource blogging and basic content management system based on PHP and MySQL. This tutorial will provide a basic introduction to

  • Pages and posts
  • Setting up your WordPress blog
  • Using the Dashboard
  • Using the editor
  • Common traps and how to avoid them

Internet access may be limited on the day, so participants should be willing to either install WordPress and prerequisites such as PHP and MySQL on their own computer or be content with following the demonstration.
