WordPress Theme Development

WordPress is NOT just a blog anymore!

For the seasoned WordPress developer or anyone coding in PHP, CSS, and jQuery, we will look at how you can take your theme to the next level. I will explain how theme architecture works, how to extend this architecture with custom template files, and how to create custom functions. I will also walk through the some interested CSS frameworks, like 960grid, implementing intermediate to advanced jQuery features, and how to customize the back end. Finally I will briefly discuss how to take your theme mobile using WPTouch and WPMobile.
