Skillshare Lunch – WordPress or Squarespace? Which website platform one is right for your business or project?

Let’s discuss topics / challenges that matter to you! Skillshare Lunch is designed for you, members of our community, as events to exchange tips, ideas, informal education or training opportunities with the whole community and build solutions together.

This month, let’s learn which website platform one is right for your business or project? Wordpress or Squarespace? with Kathleen Holmlund. 

Building a website without extensive web development experience is becoming easier, thanks to content management systems (CMS)—platforms that offer the ability to build, design, and customize good-looking sites with little to no code. There are lots of CMS platforms out there to choose from, with options ranging from drag-and-drop solutions like Wix and Squarespace to options with more complexity and features like WordPress or Drupal—so which option is best for you?

In this Skillshare lunch, we will look at the two main players in the field WordPress and Squarespace and help you select which CMS would work best for your needs.

Sandwiches will be provided.
