Are you going to WordCamp Las Vegas? I am. But don’t let that stop you from attending! WordCamps are awesome for a variety of reasons. Mostly it’s to get your learn on, meet some new folks and come away energized.
I’ll be speaking at WordCamp Vegas this year. It’s my first time speaking at this camp and I’m super excited. The event is being organized by some awesome folks, as usual. They’ve been doing it for five years running and few people do it better than them, at least that’s what my fellow WordPress peeps tell me. John Hawkins, one of the organizers, also co-organized GiveCamp Las Vegas and the guy is tops, so it’ll be good to see him again, too!
I’ll be talking about WordPress Theme Development, Parent/Child Themes vs. Starter Themes vs. Frameworks. It’s a talk I gave at WordCamp OC 2013, this year. True, it’s a rehash of that talk, but there’s always more to throw into the mix. It’s a fun talk, but I know it’s review for most developers out there. Although, I do like this topic, because it’s always something to think about. That is, our tools. What we use, when we use and why. Is every theme right for the job? It’s subjective obviously, but I definitely enjoy throwing out what my opinions on the matter are.
I look forward to seeing my friends at WordCamp as well as connecting with new ones.
If you see my talk, please come up and say “hello!” I’d love to connect.
