I have been using the website content management system for over twenty years called WordPress: which approx. 45% of websites are built with.
I have communicated and met the founder Matt Mullenweg, and have designed and worked on websites for the Canadian government, the most trafficked legal website in the world, and various other smaller organizations and individual professional clients.
I can teach you WordPress from scratch: including how to design, host, and manage the content of sites.
I can get novices up to snuff so they can begin to take on clients.
I have attended numerous WordCamps in New York City and Montreal.
