WordPress, Composer, Desktop Server and You

The actual guide to this post is at the bottom. Click here for the tl;dr version. =) I recently wrote about my pet project that I built a site for. In messing around with that project, I’d learned a good deal about Gulp build tools and all the neat things they can do. Yet, one […]

Genesis Starter Theme Using Bourbon Neat

And I’m at it again! This time I decided to cobble together a very basic Genesis Starter theme that uses Bourbon Neat. You can find that project here: Plugging away with different tools is a lot of fun actually and you learn different tricks; apply new ways of thinking and more. I feel like I’ve […]

My WordCamp OC 2013 Saturday Talk

I’d love some more feedback/contributions, obviously. Things to be added: Page Templates — Archive, Left/Right Sidebars, improved 404 Post Format Templates — The […]

Some Like it Neat

So, I ran 9 miles today. I took a nap and for the last few hours I’ve burned away on a starter theme. It’s called ‘Some Like it Neat’ and you can fork it here, on Github. The project isn’t a big deal. It’s, like many projects, just something I’m toying around with. I want […]
