About the Instructor
Nate is very user friendly. By that I mean open to questions at all times. He also asks what you would like out of the class which helps ensure that all or most needs are met. Very personable. I highly recommend this class to anyone who needs to create a blog or web site.

I really enjoyed this class. It was very quaint and allowed for great conversation amongst the attendees as well as the instructor (Nate). In addition, Nate was very informative. He provided a wealth of information regarding the subject, tools etc. I wish the class was longer. Looking forward to attending another one of Nate’s classes soon. Thank you!Christina M.
Nate was so personable and such a great resource! I look forward to taking more classes with Nate!Deborah C.

Because of the open source nature of WordPress, you’ll be able to find themes and plugins to fit any project.
