Lara Schenck – Child Themes: A Crash Course – WordPress NYC Meetup at New Work City NYC on Jan 21 2014

What is a child theme, and when should you use one? When shouldn’t you use one? Do they still have a place in the age of starter themes? Of course! Let’s talk about a few use cases, pros and cons, then…it’s demo time. We’ll create a child theme for Twenty Twelve, set up a stylesheet, implement a few useful hooks and filters, and talk best practices along the way.
