Sustainable theming: How to take a vacation.
We all want to take vacations, and we all want our sites to grow beyond without us holding its hand, or at least some of us do.
JohnAlbin and I will be co-presenting a session on how to think strategically about your theming so that it can stand on its own legs. At Palantir.net we strive to reduce the amount of bugs related to theming after a site has launched. It can be difficult to do, but with a little patience and planning you can build a theme that works on its own from a toolkit of design elements.
A theme should be something that anyone can extend fairly easily, without knowing extensive amounts of CSS and HTML. Its about understanding your client and building for what you think they'll do tomorrow, not yesterday.
