There are a ton of theme frameworks on the WordPress market, both free & paid, that all seem to be "the best". How do you figure out which one to use for what project? What good are starter themes or theme frameworks, anyway? And how do they save you any time?
Theme frameworks are essentially starter themes that you can use as a foundation for the development of your own custom themes. This can significantly reduce your development time, and saves you from re-inventing the wheel. Some are more elaborate than others with different functionality, but they all have pros and cons.
Brad Parbs, WordPress fanatic, has used almost every theme framework and starter theme out there. And even built a few of his own. He'll take us through this crazy jungle of options, so you can figure out where you need to start. Stop building custom themes for clients from scratch, there's an easier way!
Also, for those interested Patrick Rauland and Brad Parbs will both be working from Avenue HQ afterwards. Come hang out and code with us. :)
