Just after I announced the Drupal Install Fest, Patrick Ramsey, organizer of Austin WordPress Meetup and partner at Cospace, said that it would be cool to do the same thing for folks interested in WordPress.
I replied: Do it!
Pat is both an experienced teacher and expert at WordPress. In one afternoon, Pat will walk you through installing a sample test site on your Mac or Windows laptop. He will follow with basic site setup and configuration as well as adding content. He will create an example site, so that you can follow along, or if you prefer, simply observse and take notes.
At the end, Pat will cover the basics of selecting a host for your site, and how to migrate the site from your laptop to a production server.
All in one afternoon -- for free.
Here's the details:
