October Developer Day: Theme Development

This meetup is intended for intermediate to advanced WordPress developers. We will order pizza during the meetup. Please bring $5 to pitch in.

We're going to try a little bit of a different format moving forward. We'll choosing a new topic each month and will announce the next month's topic at the end of the meetup.

This month's topic will be themes with varying discussions and presentations focused on the different aspects of theming. If you have a topic related to themes that you'd like to discuss, leave a comment and we'll give you the floor.

Note: If you have questions or topics outside of the main topic, we won't turn you away. We'll reserve the last 30 minutes or so of the meetup for off-topic questions.

Building off a conversation from last month's meetup, topics could include, but are not limited to:

• starter vs parent/child theme vs theme framework
• get_template_part
• locate_template
• the loop
• page templates
• template hierarchy
• code organization
• functions.php
• post formats
• theme hook alliance

      Meetups run better when Steve Zehngut is in the room. Just sayin.

    Perfect timing for me on this. Have a freelance project coming up on WP and been a while since I developed a theme. Looking forward to it!

    Well, Steve Stevens, we are happy to have you along, and not just because you clearly have a sweet name.

    Video Producer & WP Newbie would like to sit in & just soak up as much as I can & maybe network if possible. I know this meetup is for more experienced developers but I promise to Zip it up & just listen. I just found out about this group & I am very very excited about learning more about WP. Thanks =)
