BWPM May 2011: Framework Bake-Off Part Deux

Monday, May 23rd, 2010 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm

After March’s Framework Bake-Off, courtesy of Alan Bergstein, this month we will evaluate three additional WordPress theme frameworks: PageLines Platform, StudioPress Genesis and Hybrid. Volunteers will attempt to complete a specific goal prior to the meetup (e.g., create a simple, three-page site with certain images, sidebars, posts, and functionality) to understand how these themes work in an apples-to-apples comparison, and determine how flexible and intuitive they are, or are not. Volunteers will then present their findings for each theme framework at the meetup.

A big thanks to PageLines and StudioPress for donating themes!
Kurt Eng – PageLines Platform Pro
David Gadarian – StudioPress Genesis
James Coletti – ThemeHybrid Hybrid

7-7:30pm – Networking, Pizza
7:30-7:40pm – Opening remarks, updates, any other business
7:45-8:50pm – Framework Bake-Off begins!
8:50-9pm – Wrap-up
ATTENDEES: We need a volunteer to test the Hybrid Framework! During the RSVP process, you will be asked if you would like to volunteer to build a test site using Hybrid before May 23rd, and then present your findings to the group.

Thanks and we hope to see you there!
