Building a WordPress Theme

#WRK2 Workshops Track

Room 106B


On first glance, the WordPress theme API can look like a large, unwieldy beast but with that size and scale comes an unparalleled flexibility. During this workshop, Curtiss Grymala will provide a brief primer on the WordPress theme API, then work with participants to convert a basic HTML template into a full-featured WordPress theme.
