Theme Weekend

Theme Weekend registration is live

Registration for the first ever Theme Weekend is now live. Head on over to and put your name in the hat to take part in this awesome (if I may say so myself) new event!

Theme Weekend, held on the weekend of June 30th and July 1st 2012, brings together 20 designers, developers and WordPress enthusiasts to build WordPress themes in a weekend.

The event takes place at The Network Hub in downtown Vancouver and costs $15 per person. All funds raised will be put towards food and beverages for participants.

The event has a simple set of parameters: On Saturday morning the participants will form groups that each will build a WordPress theme over the two days of the weekend. The themes will be hosted on GitHub and will be made available to the public. Throughout the event the groups can seek help from each other and from the floating pro developers and designers. The goal of Theme Weekend is simple: foster creativity and collaboration, team building and to learn from one another.
