Francis Tuttle Technology Center is excited to play a part in OKC hosting its first WordCamp! Why? Because Francis Tuttle trains both high school students and adults in WordPress, and we love what WordPress allows our students to do!

WordPress runs on the same coding languages that we teach our students in our web development career training programs: HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, and Javascript/JQuery. What better way to familiarize our students with an open-source CMS (Content Management System) than teaching WordPress? Plus, our students are able to start freelancing while they are learning because WordPress offers opportunities for creating websites at many different levels of coding expertise. As students learn more about coding, they are able to leverage WordPress to a much greater degree, learning to create their own themes and plugins that run on the WordPress engine.

Another amazing benefit of using WordPress is the fantastic community of WordPress users from around the world who spur each other on and assist one another! We encourage our students to attend the local WordPress Users Group Meetups whenever they can, and we can’t wait to see what great relationships and happenings will come about because of this WordCamp. We just know that our students and the local community of web developers who attend will leave feeling energized and inspired!
