You do NOT need a WordPress site. You will set one up on the first day of the course. If you have one, you will learn how to fix it up and improve your web publishing and WordPress skills.
You will need to bring your laptop, power cord, mouse (with extra batteries), and something to write on and take notes. You will log into the free WIFI at the Center so ensure you know how to do this before you arrive, or arrive early to get help getting online. It is highly recommended that you bring a water bottle, too. There is plenty of free parking at the center.
