Building your first WordPress site - Jeff McNear


Wordpress has an impressive market share of 34% which makes it the single most popular framework around. Flipping this equation tells us that nearly two thirds of site owners probably have little understanding on how WordPress works.

We will cover a high level overview on the default structure of this CMS, how to extend it and how the theming system works. I will also be sharing my somewhat opinionated views on best practices from the perspective of a developer who has repaired dozens of malformed and under-performing websites built by those whose experiments and improvisations with WordPress have failed.
