Lightning Demos: Show us your theme!

WordPress Themes are files that work together to create the design and functionality of a WordPress site. Each Theme may be different, offering many choices for site owners to instantly change their website look. -- WordPress Codex
(See also: What is a Theme?)

For this month we'll have attendees do short (that's the Lightning part) walkthroughs of their favorite themes/frameworks, and then have some Q&A time. There is no projector available at the coffee shop, unfortunately, but perhaps someone can look into securing another meeting space next month (Hawthorne Branch of the Madison Public Library, maybe?).

If you'd like to sign up to do a demo just indicate in the comments which theme you might be showing off; it doesn't matter if it's free, for purchase, or even created by you.

    Shopbob no longer available? I'll look in to bringing a projector. :-)

      A projector would be great! We can plan on meeting in the "table area", but I don't know how much wall space there is to project. Maybe we could call and ask to reserve a large table?

    I just bought a Genesis theme, so I'm curious to see folks who use it talk about hidden gotchas, essential plugins, and how easy it might be to use hooks

      I know that Andrew Shell uses Genesis (or at least owns a theme), but he's unable to attend. Maybe next time?

      I am learning to use Genesis, and I'll be there; so I'll be ready to talk about what I've learned. :-)

    I'll plan on going through the good/bad of something I've used from WooThemes; either Diarise (good for groups that need a calendar) or Inspire (has a nice portfolio feature):
