Did a couple of WordPress Installs Today

We finished with what was planned a little (lot) early in class today.

Earlier in the week we had talked about how it would be cool to be able to have a way to show potential employers exactly what it meant when our resumes said something like “Intermediate Pneumatics Knowledge” or “Advanced PLC Knowledge”. I had the kids start putting together Google Sites but…

Since we had the spare time I guided several of my students through the process of registering a domain, finding a host, pointing the DNS to the host, telling the host what domain we were pointing at them, installing some open source software, etc…

The end result was Jadyn created her website at Jadyn.me and Stormie created hers at LeeStormie.com. I think they were both excited about it.

In the process I decided to switch this guy back to WordPress. It does ten times more than I want it to, but at the end of the day it’s easier for me to get to look like I want.
