The school winter quarter is just about done now and next quarter should be light, which means now I can get a better grip on what’ll be going down for the Spring. Here’s what’s on the agenda right now:
1. Launch the Flex theme (first HTML, then the full WP theme).
2. Release a few of my older HTML templates as WP themes (Eminent, HyperPress, Iconic, etc.)
3. Begin work on a brand new set of Event themes (specifically for musicians/bands/performers).
4. Begin Magento theming!
5. Begin rolling out plans for the summer themes.
