October 13, 2023 — The maturation of the block editor brought with it a major shift in how WordPress theme development was expected to work. For many independent developers and small agencies, this shift seemed like an huge disruption to their workflow – a once-reliable codebase now in flux, entirely new coding languages and tooling to learn, and layers of complexity added to tools (like hooks and queries) that used to be simple and accessible.
The questions seem overwhelming: How do we build something modern for our clients while ensuring its stability and reliability in the years to come? How do we find the time to learn all these new tools while continuing to produce quality work (and support ourselves or our team in the process)? Can’t I just keep doing it the way I was doing it?
Through my own experience as a full-time independent developer – building and supporting real projects with classic WordPress, the block editor, “hybrid” themes, and Full Site Editing as these features were introduced – I will share what I have learned about navigating the triumphs and pitfalls of modern WordPress theme development, and how to confidently decide which tools and features make sense for your projects.
October 17, 2022 — Con questo talk vorrei presentare i vantaggi nell’utilizzo dei tools opensource Roots (Bedrock+Sage) per la realizzazione di un tema WordPress totalmente personalizzato.
Dopo aver fatto una veloce panoramica su come effettuare il setup via composer dell’installazione Bedrock e dello starter theme Sage mi soffermerei nel descrivere i vantaggi nell’utilizzare di tali due tools come segue:
– repository git ben organizzate grazie all’utilizzo di composer per la gestione delle dipendenze
– struttura del progetto orientata a processi di CI/CD
– facilità di aggiornamento e rollback dei plugin e del core WordPress
– benefici nella segregazio della logica php dalle viste blade
– tools webpack ready to use per la compilazione degli assets statici
July 25, 2020 — Ana Cirujano, diseñadora especializada en WordPress, nos va a explicar el proceso de diseño de una web que se va a implementar en WordPress.
En esta charla, veremos un caso real en el que Ana se basará en un tema de WordPress para crear un diseño personalizado para una web. Para ello, utilizará la herramienta Figma.
Esta charla va dirigida a diseñadores, implementadores, desarrolladores, que quieran aprender cómo se crea un prototipo con Figma que esté pensado desde un inicio para ser desarrollado con nuestro gestor de contenidos favorito: WordPress.
July 8, 2020 — When designing WordPress themes, one of the biggest challenges stems from a core component of WordPress itself: the ability for site owners to change, modify, and build new content themselves. After all, modern web content needs to be flexible and evolving, but not everyone is a developer who can build custom layouts to fit each use case.
As content and functionality become even more modular thanks to advances like the Gutenberg editor, theme designers will have to accommodate even more flexible ways of visualizing and presenting information. How do we anticipate and accommodate the needs of a constantly evolving website while providing visual solutions that are clean, thoughtful, and consistent?
In this talk, we’ll discuss the principles of Atomic Design, how to stop thinking of your content as “pages” and “posts” in favor of the concept of “building blocks”, and how to extend this mindset to utilize the potential of Gutenberg as it is now, and where it might be going in the future.
June 27, 2020 — This is the second of a three-session WordPress 101 series. The talk begins with beginner-level advice for seeking support, and then for choosing themes and plugins. Intermediate-level topics follow for customizing WordPress with CSS, menus, custom post types and custom fields.
April 16, 2020 — “This session begins with three separate case studies – from Bill Erickson, Ellen Bauer, and Beth Soderberg – to help you prepare themes for Gutenberg and concludes in a tremendous panel discussion.
Bill uses his time at the very beginning to show how to improve content management for clients by applying careful, thoughtful work to your themes. In the second presentation, Ellen talks about important considerations when working on themes that you plan to distribute to others (that is, themes you plan to sell or provide to a large audience for free). Then Beth helps us to build smarter starter themes using better default block styles and support.
After the presentations, each speaker returns to participate in a panel discussion about the challenges and considerations they couldn’t cover in their separate presentations.”
