Welcome to the first ever ‘This Week in Genesis’ on GenesisWP.guide, in which I, Nick Davis, attempt to round up the very finest things in Genesis (that’s the Genesis Framework for WordPress) that have happened this week in a completely undemocratic and unscientific fashion.
Wait, what the hell is the GenesisWP.guide? Catch the skinny here.
So what did happen this week?
- Brian Gardner teased us all with a peek at his latest theme, Expedition Pro.
- Minimal Genesis, a new Genesis theme shop launched, with not one but two themes, Constance and Leif Erickson. Plus, there’s a 20% discount code (genesiswp) which should be good to the end of the day (24 April 2015) still.
- Calvin Makes, announced two free Genesis themes (registration required), Minny and Scholar.
- OK, these technically happened last week but being as this is my first round up and, in case you missed them, the Author Pro and Community Pro themes were released on StudioPress.com.
- OfficeHours.fm (yes, I know it’s not specifically Genesis anymore but it’s still awesome) – spoke to Andy Adams about freelancing fundamentals in Episode 56.
- The UK Genesis Podcast – spoke to Vaughan Simons about content and content related design in Episode 6.
- Getting the most out of your Genesis theme – if you’ve ever struggled to fully put into words your deep love for Genesis, struggle no more, with this round up of Genesis love (and favourite features) from the Genesis community
- genesis.camp, a planned, 24 hour virtual Genesis event, is asking for interested speakers to apply before 15 May
- BobWP pulled together a stellar round-up of his Genesis Framework Plugin Tutorials.
- Copyblogger (the folks behind StudioPress and Genesis) took on a common fear about Why Parallax Design Doesn’t Have to Tank Your SEO, using their Parallax Pro theme as an example.
- Bourn Creative rocked out not one, but two, new Genesis sites this week, decisiveinternationalmarkets.com and wafirm.com
- Chris Brogan is looking for some Rainmaker designers and developers (Rainmaker, is of course, built on Genesis).
Did you like it? Was it useful? Got a suggestion for next week? (let me know).
