New WordPress Basics Course at Treehouse

For the last several months I have been rewriting all of the Beginners WordPress content at Treehouse.  Excited to announce today that WordPress Basics, the third of seven or so beginners courses in our Learn WordPress track has been released.

This course covers how to manage content in WordPress, how to work with different types of media and how to get started with plugins and themes.

Great Video on How Automattic Approaches Theme Development

Check out this great video from Philip Arthur Moore

In the video he talks about a few major approaches to creating WordPress themes:

  1. Parent and child themes
  2. Theme frameworks
  3. Starter themes
  4. From scratch

You can also find a nice write up he did of the content over on the Codepoet blog.

He also has his slides from the talk up on slideshare
