  1. I’m a old print designer switching to web. I’ve done a few WP sites using and customizing existing themes. Would love to learn more and am excited there’s knowledge here in Tucson.
    Do I need to be a TDAC member to attend?
    Where is the workshop?

    Thanks!

  2. Paula,

    This is a free event and is open to everyone. It’s most likely going to be at 115 E Broadway Blvd., though if the interest is high we may end up having it at The Screening Room. Either way it will be in downtown Tucson.

  3. 2 will be attending your WordPress workshop. thanks for putting this together.

  4. Coming back into Tucson Tuesday Night from a long needed xmas break in San Diego. Looking forward to hearing you speak Tim. I watch your creative slice firm fairly close… some great work you and your team have done! Word Press, the next generation of web 2.0 interactive sites indeed. Looking forward to being there!
