Inland Empire Saturday School Archives – If you are looking for an In-person-walkthrough of The WP Theme Setup Guide then please check out the Inland Empire WordPress Meetup Saturday School archives.   I developed this curriculum for the members of our meetup group who struggled with the fundamentals.  Once you master the fundamentals you have a solid base to advance to everything else.  These archives walk you through 19 weeks of hands-on WordPress knowledge.
