This presentation covers some of the more common and problematic errors made by commercial theme developers, and how to fix them. It analyzes what constitutes best practices in each instance, and the problems brought about by doing things the lazy way. Some of the topics included in this talk are …

* Why shouldn’t I just use Google Hosted Libraries like jQuery? CDNs are awesome and save on bandwidth!
* Why shouldn’t I just hardcode links to my theme’s CSS and JS files?
* Stylesheet Directory and Template Directory? Those are the same thing, right?
* Trust my users? They bought my theme! Why wouldn’t I trust them?
