Breaking themes for fun?! Crazy talk. Busting your WordPress theme – on purpose – can be both fun and useful. The process is a crucial part of building sites with WordPress, whether it's for a client project, a personal blog, or releasing an awesome new theme to the world.

Testing is often considered a dirty word; we either have no time to do it, or we think it's boring and tedious. Breaking stuff should be fun and something we are excited to dig into. Even better if the breaking means pushing your theme to extremes to simulate real usage, with a goal of making it the best it can be: the best quality possible, and the best experience for people using it.

We'll begin with 15 or so minutes of announcements and news, Lance's presentation will run for 20-30 minutes, and then we may break into two groups after Q&A.
