Session description

Learn to think of WordPress as an interface between you, a database and the visitor in this two-part workshop:

  • Take control of WordPress with Child Themes — build a child theme in 45 minutes and learn how to make WordPress look and behave the way you want.
  • Unleash the power of custom content — create custom post types, taxonomies and templates to move beyond simple posts and pages

This is a choose-your-own-adventure type workshop: Bring your laptop and play along with the example files and code examples provided, or sit back and take notes as the workshop unfolds.
