WordPress Front End Developer Tools – WP Theme Tools

In this 3 part series I talk about WordPress Front End Developer tools. In particular some Front End Developer tools like Theme Frameworks and CSS Frameworks along with some general programmer tools like version control and code editors. This presentation does not intend to teach you how to use a particular tool but rather gives you an overview of the problem it may solve and illustrate that there is an existing solution. The idea is to send you on a journey to explore tools you may not know about. This presentation is primarily targets at beginning WordPress Developer, but also serves medium WPDev’s.
