I have built or maintained a number of custom WordPress themes over the last few years and I’m big on making testing/validation as easy as possible. I’ve had some experience with unit testing through my Symfony and Python work and I wanted to do the same with 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. From there, I continued supporting and enhancing sites for a number of clients. What follows is a bit of a brain dump of notes and useful links I had bookmarked since I began working in WordPress.
