Intro To WordPress Theme Development

AJ will be leading a workshop in taking a static HTML site on Foundation and turning it into a WordPress theme.

We can also cover some basic over how to leverage a CMS so you can focus on your front end code, and hand off the content creation to another member of your team who does not need to have a any experience with HTML and CSS.

    Went pretty fast, so I could not really follow, but I got a good overview of the big picture and it closed several gaps for me.

    Great topic AJ! Been wanting to do this one myself for a while now. I'm going to try to make it over, but I'm pretty swamped this week.

    Okay everyone, I'm going to lead a workshop in creating a WordPress Theme from a static Foundation webpage.

    I like Carlo's suggestion on WP. More specifically, how to take the CSS from any website or framework and build out a stripped down WordPress theme like Underscores.

    Hey everyone, Sean won't be able to present on DocPad, so let me know if you have a topic you'd like to present on, or a topic you would like to know more about.

    • Carlo A.

      If I may suggest a topic, it would be great if someone can present about: how to use frameworks (such as Foundation 5) in WordPress.
