As a special treat in the lead up to  WordCamp Sydney on September 24-25th, we have 2 of our Brissy members who are presenting at Sydney give a sneak peak of their talks.

Website in a Day – Andy Henderson

Some of the reasons WordPress is the most popular web development platform in the world is it’s ease of use, and it’s ability to use themes. These features also makes it possible for complete beginners(with a little guidance) to create their very own professional looking website in a single day.

This session outlines the steps and activities that should be covered by a complete beginner to create their own website in just one day.

Honey, you’re not even responsive – Sharon France

How I learned to stop worrying and love WordPress: a beginner’s tale
Three years ago I decided to wrest back control of my website and what better way to do that than to build a WordPress site? So I did that, with a little help from a coding friend, and there it has sat, like a lump ever since: not updated, not doing anything, definitely not responsive (does it need a shot of adrenaline?) and definitely my own personal testament to fear of both web design and the internet’s unceasing affair with change (shudder).
But today that changes. Today I commit to resuscitating my website and on the way I shall do my best to chronicle the journey: the good, the bad and the ugly… hopefully there is not so much ugly!
