If you've attended any of the WordPressNYC meetups, then you know that I'm a big fan of using Parent - Child themes. Using a well coded theme as a Parent allows for quicker development and a solid foundation for your site. Last year Daisy Olsen did a session at our meetup titled " WordPress Parent / Child Themes (and why you should use them)", which outlined many of the benefits.
However, not all parent themes are created equal. So, if you tired of trying to hack functions.php just to make simple changes to your parent theme, then this session is for you. This month we are going to examine Justin Tadlock's Hybrid Core, and why you should use it to create your own theme.
So, what is Hybrid Core?
You can read about it here, where Justin Tadlock, explains it best:
Who is this session for?
This month's meetup is for anyone who wants to develop their own theme using a solid framework as a starting point. You must have a general understanding of PHP, HTML and CSS to get the most out of this session. Beginners are welcome and we will try to explain as much as possible to help you get the most our of this session.
About the Speaker
Steve Bruner runs SlipFire LLC, a WordPress development shop and is the lead organizer of this meetup. He loves WordPress and is excited to learn more about Hybrid Core.
** IMPORTANT: We have a new location this month **
