BWPM Mar2011 – WordPress Theme Framework Bake-off

Monday, March 28th, 2010 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Suggested & facilitated by member Alan Bergstein, this month we will collectively evaluate three popular WordPress theme frameworks, Thesis, Headway, and a third (to be decided). This will take place live during the March meetup, from 7:30pm – 9pm. We will select three people to drive each of the three themes in attempt to complete a specific goal (e.g., create a simple, three-page site with certain images, sidebars, posts, and functionality). We will not proclaim a “winner” but instead use this experiment to understand how these themes work in an apples-to-apples comparison, and determine how flexible and intuitive they are, or are not.

7-7:30pm – Networking, Pizza
7:30-7:40pm – Opening remarks, updates, any other business
7:45-8:50pm – Live framework Bake-off begins!
8:50-9pm – Wrap-up
ATTENDEES: During the RSVP process, you will be asked for: (1) your vote on the third theme to test-drive, and (2) if you would like to be included in the selection pool of three people to drive the themes during the live session.
