Great tutorial series! However there is one thing you forgot to mention
(please like this comment!) — The WAMP server will not run properly if
Skype is running. If your server icon is orange, close out of Skype
completely, click on the icon, and select “Start all services.” This should
fix any blank screen issues when trying to load localhost or any php files.

This is a fantastic series and also your WP Customizer tutorials. I would
be very happy to see your WP tutorials at Tuts+ as they certainly are up
to par. (although ‘they’ would probably ask for less friendly ramblings :)

Austin, I have just finished watching your videos over a two day period and
I would like to thank you for your time and knowledge. I found this
tutorial very intuitive, especially since I come from a programming
background (mostly AS3) that has no WordPress experience. I now feel very
comfortable at offering theme development for a client. Thanks again,
greatly appreciated!!!
