We welcome Camp Tech as a Covet Garden sponsor because they love technology as much as we love interiors. Founder and lead instructor Avery Swartz wants to bring that love of knowledge to anybody who has every been flummoxed or just plain initimidated by tech speak.
While most classes are designed for beginners, you will leave with skills that you can apply right away. But you'll learn theory to help you understand how computers and the internet work so that you can feel in control of your website, blog or social media stream. Instruction is intensive—most classes are only one day long (and include a delicious lunch!)—making Camp Tech perfect for small business owners who can't invest the time and travel in going to a class once a week.
Camp Tech classes are taught by working professionals who are up-to-date on the latest trends and developments in their fields. And, as the name suggests, it's not fluffy, but it's not a stuffy classroom setting either: Our Jessica attended a Camp Tech WordPress seminar last weekend and found the whole experience to be affordable, fun, friendly and very informative. Instructor Avery even scored discount coupons and free themes for some of the best WordPress theme sites out there and provided links to all kinds of amazing resources for the the attendees. It was also great meeting other students and learning about how they planned to harness the power of blogging.
Upcoming classes include Twitter, Email Marketing and Facebook for Small Business and the aforementioned WordPress for Beginners.
