(breezy instrumental music) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen, staff author at Lynda.com, and I'm excited to welcome you to Installing and Running WordPress: DesktopServer. This course will give you the tools and knowledge you need to set up and configure your own custom WordPress development environment on a Windows computer or a Mac using DesktopServer. First, I'll explain what DesktopServer is and how it works.
Then, I'll show you how to set up several development sites on your computer so you can work on multiple projects at the same time. And finally, I'll demonstrate how you can create your own custom installs, also known as blueprints. Whether you're looking to learn how to use WordPress, want to become a WordPress developer, or just want to add a new tool to your WordPress development tool vault, DesktopServer is a tool you'll want to check out. And it all starts with Installing and Running WordPress: DesktopServer.
