Setting up a local sever environment on your computer will save you a bunch of time if you regularly test or develop themes and plugins.
Not only will your local sites run much quicker than they would online, but you’ll also have a much safer testing environment away from a live site.
Having a localhost environment has dramatically improved my workflow and is even an important part of my WordPress working life. It’s such a waste of money using an online WordPress installation with a web host as a test environment!

My name is SiEun, you may also call me Shaina. I am a web/graphic designer living in and working part-time at small marketing company in Orange County, CA. I create strong visual messages which spark thought-provoking. I struggle to design a balance between style and function which is intuitively beautiful, yet boldly functional.
At work, I am an effective team player who understands both the purpose and creativity needed to execute successful collaborative projects. My work mainly focuses on Corporate Advertising Print/Web design. I am passionate about communication through the art medium, and eager to work on new projects with creative ideas.
Through my work, I also take time to help many non-profits and faith-based ministries meet physical and spiritual needs of people both around the community and here at home. I have volunteered to manage a variety of web pages for the last four years. Managing these web pages helped confirm my true passion to be in this field for the rest of my life.
I have two children and a dog named Ginger, beautiful Pembroke Welsh Corgi. When I’m not on the computer, I enjoy playing the piano, exploring new places, watching lots of movies, and walking with my laughing Ginger.
My favorite website is Pinterest.com because it gives me lots of ideas for something I need to adapt for future use. I usually get inspiration for styles to try, food to make, and activities to do with my family. My favorite quote is “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” (by Martin Luther King Jr.)
I always had WordPress in my mind to learn several years ago and finally I took the class at IVC. I work hard to develop my own blog and portfolio site on WordPress entirely.

I hope to learn and improve my WordPress skills through this class. Read More
