viNGN Gives Mini-Course on WordPress at Whim Greathouse

Anita Davis provides the basic steps to getting ready to launch a Web site with WordPress at the St. Croix Landmarks Society Research Library & ArchivesThe Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) team members recently delivered a mini-course entitled “Getting Online with WordPress” at the Whim Greathouse and Museum Research Library & Archives. WordPress is now the largest, self-hosted blogging tool in the world. It is “Open Source” – developed by the tech community; it’s free, and WordPress allows just about anyone to create a web presence without coding or programming experience.
Event co-coordinator Naeemah Legair, who is the communications intern for the St. Croix Landmarks Society, especially enjoyed a brief presentation of the viNGN story, which began in 2010 and continues with the launch of the nation’s only fully interconnected, 100 percent fiber optic network serving a jurisdiction among all 56 U.S. states and territories. “The fiber optic network that we now have is truly something valuable that we must take advantage of.” she said. The Estate Whim Museum is located at No. 52 Estate Whim in Frederiksted St. Croix.
