  • Session preview

    Word of warning: this Session is not for the faint-hearted! Throughout the course of nearly fifty screencasts Adi Purdila will walk you through conception and completion of an entire WordPress blog theme. You'll start out on our sister site, Webdesigntuts+, in Photoshop, translate the design into an adaptive HTML and CSS build, then jump here to Wptuts+ where you'll rig everything up with WordPress.

    There's rarely a better way of learning web design than to watch over someone's shoulder for the duration of a complete project; this is your chance to do just that.

It defines how people interact with it, how easy it is to use, and perhaps even how much they enjoy using it. This is the ultimate aim of your plugin: to make a particular task, or tasks, easier for your end user (in fact this is the seemingly forgotten aim of computers themselves). The UI should be attractive, but ultimately it should be functional. When deciding how to layout your plugin, you need to decide how to make your plugin easy to use - better yet, get feedback - this is essentially what WordPress is doing.

Prior experience with web languages like CSS, JavaScript, and HTML is helpful when creating iBooks, but no prior knowledge is necessary to complete this session.
