Hot on the heels of WordCamp San Francisco, Tammie Lister will be joining us from rainy England. Tammie is a designer who specialises in creating communities. She’s passionate about community design and mixing in psychology with design and development to create sites that make sense to humans. Over the years she’s been lucky enough to create varied projects with great clients under her company logicalbinary.com. She is a contributor to both BuddyPress and WordPress. Tammie spends most of her time living in themes and has a book due out soon about BuddyPress theme development.
Tammie will be sharing her knowledge of themes in her presentation “The Life of a Theme.”
This is a tale of a theme, from its early stages of research through to the first steps into wireframes and the move into a prototype. It’s a tale of joy, sadness and a dash of danger as browsers are fought and code tamed. This is a story that doesn’t include Photoshop but that does include designing in code. It’s a story we all know variations of and this is my version. This is the story of my design process and how I create themes.
