WordPress is rapidly gaining popularity as one of the most preferred website platforms by several companies. This is due to the fact that the back-end is very user-friendly for the developer, designer and the end user, whether it’s the client or the page visitor. Surprisingly, this platform is also cheaper as compared to other more complicated back-ends. There are thousands of websites today that harness WordPress as their platform and everybody’s pretty sure that number is still growing.
To serve this demand, Illumedia, one of Davao’s fastest growing web and graphic design outfits in Davao city, offers its first Basic WordPress Theme Creation Workshop this summer. For the measly sum of P2500 (P2000 for students and fresh graduates) you can participate in a 4-day intensive design and development camp and you can even get to take home a workshop booklet and DVD, snacks, special prizes and other surprises. It’s going to be on April 21, 22, 28 and 29, from 9:00AM to 6:00PM, at Illumedia’s office (2nd floor La Core Bldg, Victoria Plaza Carpark). Technical pre-requisites are simple: basic HTML and basic Photoshop.
Illumedia’s Basic WordPress Theme Creation Workshop aims to help aspiring web designers jumpstart their careers in Web Design and teach the important facets of Web Design and Development. It will also help encourage the participants to develop their creativity to build fully functional and eye-catching websites that appeal to a global audience. And Illumedia, being a well-accomplished team of young IT professionals, ensures that the entire workshop is going to be fun! For one, WordPress veteran Eliza Magno is the trainer for this event. She learned the basics of programming at the tender age of 13 (in the 90s!) and as of press time, she is regularly invited to speak for local and international talks about design, IT and outsourcing.
“Although the WordPress fame is not a secret to everyone in the industry, it’s still daunting how WordPress is not taught in schools. Most web and graphic designers who’ve mastered the WordPress platform learned on their own. Aside from the technical know-how, Team Illumedia also initiates building a support network for this workshop-goers and we plan to give continuous support to them. We’re giving away free domains and hosting as special prizes to a few people, so they can start building their online portfolios and get started on their careers. On top of everything, we hope to inspire them to work with passion.” That was a quote from Eliza Magno; and she glows with pride as she muses about her hopes for this workshop.
