This month we have a double feature about theme creation!

Marvin Parke ( will be talking about the basics of how a theme is structured. What is header.php? Where can I change a single post template?

Then Chris K. will take the next step of learning how to create a custom theme from scratch. Where do you begin? What are the features every theme should have? We'll start with nothing and create a rough theme.


We're meeting at Lab1500 (, a brilliant co-working space located on Washington Ave.

1500 Washington Ave., Suite 100
St. Louis, MO 63103

The entrance is on 15th Street and we'll be on the ground floor. Parking is on the street and the meters stop running at 7pm.


Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation.


6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.

7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.

7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.
