Feel Free to ask questions

In case you were wondering...

Anyone interested in starting something new and on their own. This course is perfect for many levels from beginners new to websites and startups, to people looking to refine their skills with the newest technologies.
Of course! We accept credit card, but when you register you can certainly select to pay by cash at the door.
We have to cover the costs of the venue, and we've incorporatedthe costs of bringing you amazing instructors from the startup and tech industry into the cost of the event. The price for getting a website built professionally is often over $1,000. Intensive workshops in business and programming often have a thorough application process, requires 4-12 weeks of classes full-time and costs $1,000 to $10,000! We're offering the chance to give your idea a try for a fraction of the price! We want to help build the tech scene in Calgary.
During the week of August 15th to 19th, we will be hosting two sessions per day, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There will be a morning session 10am to 12pm, and an evening session 6pm to 8pm.
Day 1 - Choose a domain and host provider, create a WordPress.org account, install Wordpress on your host provider and connect your WordPress account. Get familiar with WordPress and the custom GreyAdv demo.
Day 2 - Follow a guided tutorial to create your website. Select a WordPress theme, add miscellaneous website details (author/organization details, meta tags for SEO/SMM, Google Analytics), create a site map to choose what pages will be on the website, update the website content (headings, body, pictures, add links).
Day 3 - Market your website! Now that your website is online, you need to get people to see it, so you can measure how interested people are in your idea. You'll learn digital marketing theory, and apply it right away to promoting your new website.
All you need is yourself, a laptop and mouse, and maybe a notebook and pen to take notes!
There is paid parking in downtown Calgary, and there are also several busses which provide quick and convenient access to core downtown as well as the C-Train.
Please send any questions and inquiries to d@greyadv.com.
Absolutely! GreyAdv would love to hear from you and help answer any questions you may have once you're on your own. Similarly, we'll be offering future workshops that dive deeper into bringing your ideas to life and launching side projects and startups.
Not at all! The only requirement is that you're interested in learning to build an idea from the ground up.
If you're not overly satisfied with your experience at the workshop, we will happily refund you 100% of your ticket price.
