Somerville Skillshare: Monthly Workshop Series

What is Skillshare?                                                                                      Somerville Skillshare is a free monthly learning event that features classes around any innovative topic and we encourage locals to teach it. It’s a way to learn new skills, jump-start new hobbies, and meet other people with similar interests, all in a fun and informal setting.

About Skillshare
On March 2nd, 2014, nearly 800 people attended the first annual Somerville Skillshare that featured classes taught by nearly 40 local teachers. Ever since we have turned this event into a monthly series so that we can continue to showcase the unique talents of local residents.

November 2017 Skillshare:

WordPress Crash-Course with Nat Burns, 7-8pm

Whether you want to start a blog or your own business, having a professional looking website is essential. Nat Burns runs his own web server which he uses to create and host dozens of websites. He’ll give you crash-course in WordPress, showing you how to pick a template that fits your needs and create pages and posts within it to display your content.

Excel Intro with Janet McNamara, 8-9pm
Keeping track of your small business or personal finances is important. Rather than spending money on costly accounting software, you can learn how to build your own financial tracker with Excel (or Google’s Sheets) that can be tailor made to suit your needs. Janet McNamara is senior accounting professional with an extensive expertise in advanced Excel capabilities. She’ll be sharing some of that expertise with you to show you how manage your own personal or professional finances.
