Aaron’s presentation: Advanced Theming: Building Custom Functionality to Make Your Theme Work for You
How many years have you used WordPress? 4 years total, 1 year professionally
I look forward to speaking because: I am excited about getting people to think bigger about their theme and get away from the “out of the box” concept. I want to teach people how small customizations can turn WordPress into a powerful tool.
Favorite WordPress Project: Currently, I am working on a standardized WordPress template for WashU that includes a ton of functionality built in. This template will not only standardize WashU’s brand across multiple platforms, but give us the ability to deploy robust sites quickly.
In the future, I see WordPress being used for every site that calls for content management. WordPress is the swiss army knife of website platforms.
WordPress has changed the way I approach any web development project.
Best real-life camping story: I love cooking over the camp fire. One morning, I’m unsure how, but my hash browns turned out charcoal grey – they tasted just fine. Now, anytime I go camping I get the request for my infamous grey hash browns.
