Learning WordPress

Learning PHP at Pixo was a lead into my initial projects: building custom WordPress themes.  My first project was a child theme and my second was a ‘from scratch’ theme.  I had two awesome mentors through this process and I can’t thank them enough.  What follows is a bit of a brain dump of notes and useful links I had bookmarked along the way.

One thing that really gets to me when learning a new framework (and I use that term very loosely here) is that the official documentation is of poor quality in terms of content, organization, etc.  WordPress’ documentation does not suffer this problem.  Most times when I go to the wordpress codex, I can find exactly what I’m looking for.  This really helps soften the learning curve.
