"It's not me, it's you!" - finding new love with the WordPress Double-O framework

Dave Stewart will introduce and demo the Wordpress "Double-O" framework, a new MVC theme architecture that runs on top of Wordpress and promises to completely revolutionise both your WordPress programming and theme development.

It's structured, configurable, extensible, and supports a revolutionary Model/View architecture, plus a powerful templating language that offers total (or partial – it's up to you) separation of presentation and logic. Not only that but it's been designed from scratch following best practices and modern techniques, leveraging the best of PHP5 to eliminate the common Wordpress hacks and workarounds you've come to take for granted.

If you're a seasoned developer working with real MVC frameworks, this is what you've been waiting for. If you're a WordPress stalwart, or more of a hobby programmer, welcome to a wonderful new world.

This talk will be a 50/50 mix of practical demonstration and technical hands-on.

Advanced Custom Fields - Creating Flexible Content and other cool stuff!

By Kirsty Burgoine

With a heavy focus on theme development, this talk will look at how to build your themes around some of the really cool features Advanced Custom Fields has. Including multi column layouts, using ACF with the Google Maps API,  some of the cool things you can do with images, and more.

Giving theme developers greater flexibility to build larger sites yet still making it easy for clients to take control and manage their content.

  • Dave S.

    Thanks for all the great feedback about Double-O, folks! I was a bit worried that the talk ended up being a bit dry, but it seems that both you devs and designers enjoyed it. Phew!

    Anyway - the slides are now online: https://skydrive.live.com/view.aspx?resid=65A55583927C4A01!159&app=PowerPoint&authkey=!AOAMS33qqpBJHc4

    If anyone is interested in being a Beta tester when that time arrives (next month or so) drop me a mail to dave at davestewart do co dot uk, letting me know what kind of WordPresser you are, and we'll go from there.

    And please do share / tweet / whatever if you think this would interest your colleagues / peers / followers, etc.

    Cheers for now,
    Dave

      I totally agree! We should all pitch in to help pay for the pizzas that Keith shelled out for last night. It's not fair that he should pay for it. Keith, if you send me your details I'll make a contribution.

    Calling all WP freelancers with some PHP experience. I am trying to set up a page on my website that uses virtual money to purchase. I have found the plugins that could do this but they still need to be customised which I couldn't do. Would anybody be interested in working on this. I am told it is very possible. If you are please get in touch and we can discuss further.

    Cheers
