I’ll Be Building WordPress Stuff Starting… Now

For a while I’ve been thinking I should learn a bit more about the code behind WordPress themes and plugins. I’m a software developer by day (in a different environment), but software is software and learning the ins and outs of how WordPress works would be a good exercise. I’d be lying if I didn’t also admit I came back from WordCamp San Francisco with a bit of a desire to learn how to code a bit in hopes of improving WordPress itself.

I’m also in the midst of launching a side brand related to my Portland-area photography business. It’ll be a month or two until it’s unveiled, but I have a vision for the online component. Rather than try to kludge my way into something that doesn’t fit, I decided this would be a great time to get into WordPress.

I’ve setup a local WordPress development environment, pored over the WordPress Codex, and am diving into constructing a theme.

Wish me luck.

    You’re a software developer?? I had no idea. You learn something new every day. I’ve made one complete custom WP theme and will be frantically stitching my portfolio site together in the next three weeks in time for graduation. So we can suffer together. :) Good luck!

      Fun fun. I started mucking with code last night. I haven’t broken anything too badly… yet.

    Awesome! I had the same feelings emerge from being at WCSF. Good luck with your learning! 😀
