WordPress Theme Bootcamp Resources

If you are planning on attending the Theme Bootcamp on Sunday, here is some information on what you should have ready beforehand.

Laptop Computer

Bring your laptop. These sessions will involve a hands on approach, walking you through the theme development processes step by step. Be prepared to follow along.

Local Server

You will need a local server running on your machine in order to work with an install of WordPress. If you have this already, that’s great! If not, we will have assistance at the “Happiness Bar” (located in the boat room on the lower level) throughout the day Saturday. Please make time to stop by and get some help setting up a server so you’re ready to go on Sunday.

We encourage you to setup your local server with a free version of “Desktop Server” – the easiest and fastest way to get a local WordPress install up and running! This is the environment that the Happiness Bar will be assisting with as well. You can grab a copy here: http://serverpress.com/products/.

For more details on what will be covered during each session and to get all of the assets you will need for it, please visit http://azanebrain.github.io/wcsd-2015-theme.
