WordPress Blogging Workshop/Contest

// February 17th, 2009 // Events

Finally today (17/02/2009) we finalized the workshop and contest on “Blogging with WordPress” for students of Department of Information Science & Engineering, Gogte Institute of Technology, Belgaum
Prof Kiran K.T and our H.O.D. Prof.  M. M. Math were were Co-operative in approving the idea of conducting such an stuff first time in the college history.Myself and Snehal will be handling most of the stuff.
Although I had though of arranging such workshop last year itself , could not implement due to various circumstances. Don’t know whether it was possible this time too if  Snehal had not asked about keeping a website design contest !
The workshop is going to be conducted on 27/02/2009 from 2.00pm to 3.00pm. I’m expecting nearly 100 candidates to attend the workshop.
The following topics will be covered :
  • Introduction
  • Hosting & Domains
  • WordPress Installation
  • Using WordPress
  • Theming
  • Plugins
  • Widgets
  • Using Analytics
  • S.E.O.
  • Promoting the site
Almost all candidates are new to this field and workshop shall provide them with the basic information and a motivation for thier online identity. We are going ahead with Free Hosting and free co.cc domains which is provided by www.FreeHostCell.com. The contest shall be starting after the workshop and candidates shall have of lot of time of around 45 days. I don’t know how they are going to cope up with wordpress blogging. The best blogs  shall be awarded.
