- Prompt adds technical training to its rich portfolio of PR, marketing, video production and copywriting services; kick-starts series with two-day practical WordPress courses -

London, UK - 25 March 2013 - Prompt Communications, a public relations and digital communications agency with offices in London, Boston and San Francisco, has launched a new technical training programme called Prompt-Ed which is getting underway with an instructional series of hands-on WordPress training workshops.

The practical WordPress training courses, called 'Successfully Wrestle with WordPress Over a Weekend', are available to any individuals and businesses that need to strengthen their blogging and content management strategies. During each course, participants learn the skills necessary to create, deploy and manage their own WordPress pages and posts, including advanced functions such as customisation, plugins and SEO optimisation. Popular WordPress extensions covered in each course include JetPack, ContactForm7, UserPhoto, Yoast SEO and various anti-spam tools.

These two-day courses guide small groups through key WordPress skills including web server set up and management, posts, pages, SEO optimisation, and plugins. Scheduled sessions will take place over the weekend at Prompt's Covent Garden offices in London, from 10am to 4pm, with an initial series of courses available throughout April. Two-day courses cost £300 per person including VAT, and can be booked here. Places can be secured online (payable via Prompt's US shop at $450 dollars), or paid for by cheque or PayPal.

Hazel Butters, CEO of Prompt Communications, said: "With almost 62 million WordPress sites on the web today, individuals and businesses understand the importance of learning to use and optimise such a powerful and pervasive content management system. Prompt is thrilled to offer these simple but extremely informative practical workshops that address all of the features and challenges of WordPress, while providing the hands-on support and encouragement that is lacking in so many frustrating, time-consuming and ineffective online self-tutorials. Prompt uses WordPress every day, so do many of our successful clients, and so will you."

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
