New online software allows you to design and launch a website without any technical background. This means that with only a layman’s knowledge of computers, you can now build your own website, and a new 6-hour workshop sponsored by the BDCC’s INSTIG8 program will help.
This workshop is designed to help you design a site, craft each page, and finally turn the site live without the need for a webmaster. You will work on your own site, using your own computer, under the skilled eye of the workshop instructor. And while there is no guarantee that you can complete the site in just 6 hours, if you are willing to invest the time and energy, you will be able to launch your site soon after the workshop.
