Justin Kozuch has submitted some information about a WordPress event happening February 11th in Toronto as a part of the Refresh Events series - WordPress: Zero to Hero.
If you want to learn how to create your own WordPress themes, understand how to use template tags and conditional tags to format and display the data you want, or how to use WordPress as a content management system, Nick will take you from WordPress Zero to Hero in 7 hours flat.
This workshop is for people who have a WordPress blog (or are in the process of creating one) and would like to create their own theme and templates for personal or professional use. This workshop is also for web designers who wish to offer a value-added service to their clients. PHP skills are not required to attend this workshop.
The cost for attendance is $125 CAD and includes wireless internet access/power, breakfast, coffee breaks and, of course, the great course material to be presented. It's recommended that attendees have their own local LAMP installation before coming as that installation will not be covered.
