Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

This introductory workshop is aimed at people or groups who'd like to self-publish their research using the open content management system WordPress.  Specifically, this is for people who want to publish with more control than what's offered via the WordPress.com service. Attendees will learn to install the environment on their own laptop necessary to run WordPress and extend its capacity for particular research needs. We will also discuss issues related to real-world web hosting services and resources for further development. *Please bring a laptop on which you have the permission to install software.
