    WordPress is a great thing to learn. It’s the most popular CMS in the world, which means it has more people developing improvements to it all the time than any other.

    There’s already over 17,000 free plugins (like apps for your smartphone) to boost the functionality of your website. This can include things like shopping carts, payment processing, e-stores and photo galleries that even five years ago used to cost a fortune.

    Good luck with a great seminar!

    @Alistair – I love WordPress. It’s so easy to use!

    @Myke – Some people like to learn with an instructor. Sometimes it’s easier to learn from someone than read through a bunch of articles/sites with language that may or may not make sense to you. To each his own and I thought it would be good to mention options to people.
