Speaker Spotlight: Aaron Jorbin – Building Child Themes

Building a theme from scratch is so 2007. Now with a default theme like Twenty Ten and theme frameworks such as Thematic, Carrington, and Hybrid there are less and less reasons to ever build a theme from scratch.

Child themes, which Automattic Theme Wrangler Ian Stewart described as “the smart way” to modify a theme, are also easier to construct, upgrade, and can speed up your theme development exponentially. If you’re still building themes from scratch, this presentation will help you take the next step. Using a bit of css and php, you can  transform one theme into a completely new theme, which I will demonstrate before you very eyes.

If you’re not already using child themes, now is your chance to learn why you should. And if you already are, now is your chance to learn some tips and tricks to make it go even faster. Join me at 2:00pm on June 5th. See you then!
