Join web developer and trainer Karin Carlson on a journey of discovery, as she walks you through the design, implementation, and manipulation of a real-life CMS (Content Management System) website using the popular open source CMS program Joomla!

You will learn how CMS websites differ from their HTML cousins, how content is organized in sections and categories and called from menus and links, how ftp file management works, how to change the look of a website by using templates and how to customize a template, how to effectively use modules, and more. Karin will cover how to set up your site for browser-friendly URLs, how to set up a log in system for users to submit content to the site, using RSS feeds and social media, and installing extensions to add functionality to your site such as forms, calendars, and podcasting.

You do not need to know any coding language or have previous web design experience in order to gain valuable insight into the world of Joomla!
