Stand Out Series: WordPress Development with ACF Pro

Workshop Overview

Stand Out Series is an intensive, two-hour education class that arms participants with practical marketing skills and know-how to help improve their businesses.

Each month, participants will be able to choose between two different marketing topics, which will be taught simultaneously.

For this event, the topics are: 1. WordPress Development with ACF Pro and 2. Digital Marketing – What Every Business Owner Needs to Know. There is a recommended $20 donation, which will be donated to a Baltimore non-profit organization.

WordPress Development with ACF Pro

Custom Fields are an essential element of any custom WordPress powered website. While this is a powerful feature, WordPress lacks the input types content editors have come to expect on the web and invite a certain margin of error. Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) Pro fills the gap by providing a framework to build beautiful, streamlined editing interfaces.

Students will learn the ins-and-outs of using ACF Pro on their projects, and walk away with the ability to craft an editing experience that empowers their clients to update their own website.
