Following requests received from some of my students next Friday, July 23 I impart a special meeting for all students in any of the Masters where I teach en la UAB. This class is open to students in the 2010 editions as alumni of the 2009 editions.
In principle, students can attend this class should receive a notice from the university in their emails.
Class: Creating a website using WordPress as content manager.
DayFriday 23 at 10am
Place: Graduate School of the UAB (room to be confirmed)
Cost: for free.
Duration of the class: About 4 hours, although if they wish, students may leave as soon as they have the website online and running.
What we learn: aprenderemos cómo descargar el software para la gestión de contenidos (WordPress), cómo utilizar un cliente de FTP (File Transfer Protocol) para subir ficheros a un servidor, cómo crear una base de datos y un usuario para esa base de datos, cómo instalar WordPress en un hosting, cómo configurarlo, cómo cambiar el diseño original de WordPress utilizando nuevas plantillas, cómo editar una plantilla y cómo entrar el contenido al sitio web. Si tenemos tiempo y todo sale bien a la primera, también veremos cómo abrir una cuenta en Google Analytics y cómo incluir los códigos de seguimiendo en WordPress para poder analizar el tráfico de la página web que habremos creado.
Example of some corporate websites created by our team using WordPress: www.fertilaiser.com, www.restaurantinsolit.com, www.sixtytwohotel.com, www.albumdigitalcanarias.com, www.biciescapa.com, www.top-noticias.com and of course, this blog www.montsepenarroya.com
What you need: While the class to follow and end up getting a perfectly functional website you must have the following
- Your own laptop to connect to the WIFI network of the Graduate School.
- A domain name for the website you wish to create (for example: vuestronombre.com). You can buy here https://www.cdmon.com or www.sync.es or any ISP and costs about 13 euros per year.
- A hosting in that you can host the web, I recommend to www.cdmon.com or the www.sync.es (But any will do). The hosting should be as simple that you find with PHP and mySQL. The cost of this type of hosting is between 30 euros and 50 euros per year (depending on ISP). For example, this hosting: https://www.cdmon.com/cas/alojamiento/basico/miniplan/
Having all this takes an active couple of days ... so do not wait to the last minute to buy it because it will serve to have it ready in class. A class you must arrive with the login and password control panel of the contracted accommodation. This will be sent by email when you make the hiring of hosting.
If someone does not want to buy a domain or hire a hosting but want to follow the class, you can do it anyway. I will live installation screen classroom.
If someone wants to start the installation without the class, here's a good tutorial on how:

What you learn in this class will serve to install any type of content management system (including electronic commerce). You will see how in a morning get a fully functional website!
Class language: It is possible that this class students of the Master is aimed at Euroasian International Business, if any of them do not speak Castilian class would be taught in English ... but do not suffer because'll going table to table checking what you are about doing and helping those who have difficulties.
If you are a student and the week of July 23 has not yet received the notice from the university and wish to attend this class, please send me an email.
See, a hug.
