Great overview of Wordpress. Helps to have a basic understanding of setting up a website as it is a lot of information in a short amount of time. The instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and approachable.

I arrived at the class after 6:15, but felt like I didn't miss much. The proficiency level of students varied - so there were a host of questions some more fundamental than others. There was one particular student who dominated the class with basic questions that could have been asked at the end of class, but the instructor never gave her the option. Perhaps, a simple proficiency level quiz would be helpful to prospective attendees seeking for classes.
