DWIT Software club recently conducted a workshop on “Wordpress”. The workshop was conducted to help students learn basic knowledge of how it works. A total 22 students were selected for the workshop where they were expected to come to Deerwalk complex early morning at 8 AM. The event was 4-5 hour long with one break. Though the starting time of the event was sharp 8 A.M., installing XAMPP and Wordpress made it a little bit late than the actual time. The event started with a brief introduction of WordPress and how are “wordpress.com” and “wordpress.org” different from each other. And then, practicals on how to work on WordPress using Apache server was held. Every student had their own laptop so everyone was made to work on their laptop as the instructor taught. More the student tried on their very own laptop, more they seemed to learn. After that, there was a small break where the club provided students with breakfast which included few bakery items and a glass of soft drink for every person. Full stomach did a good job to make student focus on each and every detail explained there. Introduction, Posts, Pages, Plugins, and Themes on WordPress were some of the topics covered during the session. By the end of the workshop, everyone seemed to have a fair idea of what WordPress is, how to get a personal domain name and also how to host website.
“Wordpress workshop was one of those workshops I was really interested in. Enthusiastic about creating my own website, I filled the form in no time and it was really worth it. The tutor was really welcoming and he explained the topic really well. I was expecting to know more about web hosting and domain registration, and now I finally did.” - Sanjay Sanjel, Class of 2021 “It was of great help especially to the students who are completely new to blogging. We got to know about basics of word press, things we can do in this and to sum up the class was really really cool with lots of knowledge and yummy breakfast .” - Aakash Bhandari, Class of 2021 “It was awesome. Looking forward to the next workshop." - Aabiskar Pandey, Class of 2021
