uh oh. I'm not sure if it'll help, but I'm taking a really interesting coursera course about learning how to learn. https://www.coursera.org/learn/learning-how-to-learn

No coding for me tonight probably, but I will be organizing some of the courses I bookmarked over the semester and adding them into my course binder if I think they are decent.

Hey @Lilyheart.
I'm not really coding tonight either. Working on learning how to develop custom themes for WordPress - does involve a bit of PHP.

Hey all - I will be coding when I get home. Right now getting some dinner, haha.
That's interesting @ccziriak - I've built one before if you need help

Hey @ccziriak , I still think it's coding! Just not coding in a full language.

I may take you up on that @G7470
I've tried a few different tutorials and still not sure about the best approach.
@G7470 Did you use a starter theme?

I won't be of much help... I took existing themes and beat them into what I wanted... over a decade ago xD

@G7470
May 23 2017 21:46
I wrote mine from scratch - I used a couple tutorials to do it. They could be the very ones you're looking at haha

@Lilyheart - yeah - beating them into what you wanted sounds about right :smile:

HA! If you wanna dig further into WordPress, I know someone deep into the local WordPress scene. She's super smart about it xD I can find out what's local-ish.
I don't know if she watchs gitter tho... @angelinasimms ???

I did one tutorial on developing a child theme. Did another using Underscores as a starter theme - but I'm not sure it showed the correct way - looks like the author just deleted a bunch of stuff and copied in his own static stuff.
I'm going to the next Philly Burbs WP meetup - maybe @angelinasimms is a member there?

I'd like to have at least one CMS to offer clients and WP is the most popular but I always had trouble finding themes that did exactly what I want.
