The workshop you’ve been asking for!

Learn to build a WordPress theme based on the Genesis (from StudioPress) framework.   Start from a Photoshop/Fireworks file or existing static HTML site – we will go through the basic steps to building a Child Theme that you can use to deliver a unique site for yourself or your customers.

 

Who should attend

Web designers or developers interested in learning how to make their own WordPress sites. 

To get the most out of this class you need:

Your own web hosting environment where you can run WordPress, and to which you have FTP access.

Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, and the tools to edit these files.

The ability and tools to produce web graphics (e.g. cut up a Photoshop file).

A specific website you want to build.  Bring your static site or design comps to the workshop.  

 

Pricing

This class is targeted at practitioners, so we have a unique sliding scale – you can register for $250 or 1/2 of your daily rate – what you would charge a client for 1/2 day of work – whichever is higher.
