We all know about WordPress.com, but few know the inside story of how the day to day decisions for new features get made. This behind the scenes talk by WordPress.com team lead Scott Berkun, will explain how we work and communicate, including how we pick and develop new features, how we work with .org (the open source project) and how a distributed company with developers and designers in nearly every time zone and on every continent gets things done.
My new Years resolution for 2011 was to create a theme available for downloaded in the official WordPress theme directory. Now, as with any project, I began with the expectation that I would learn a thing or two along the way. This project was no exception, but to be honest with you, I had no idea that I would learn so much! During the course of this talk I will share my experiences creating a theme for public release complete with code examples, personal opinions and maybe even a fact or two! WordPress users of all skill levels are welcome to attend as theme design affects us all.
