Have you ever wondered where The Loop and the Template Hierarchy come from? What happens behind the scenes in core to make themes do what they do? Find out in my talk from WordCamp Montreal 2013, “Fundamentals of Theme Development”, now up on WordPress.tv.
WordCamp Montreal 2012 was held this past August 18-19, and on the Sunday, I gave a talk about getting started with WordPress theme development (slides are available here). Savoir-Faire Linux kindly produced videos of some of the talks, now available on YouTube. Enjoy!
I’ll be giving a talk this Thursday, February 2nd, at the Montreal WordPress Dev Meetup (find out details on the Facebook page).
I’ll be discussing the WordPress Free Themes Directory, the Theme Review Team (for which I volunteer), and shed some light on the theme review process. We’ll also dig in to some code to show you some common errors, best practices, and ultimately, how to get your theme approved with minimal frustration and maximum learning.
These dev meetups are always a lot of fun, and will have plenty for both fresh newbies and the experienced coder alike. See you there!
