The meeting link will be shown 15 minutes before the event

The IndieWeb WordPress community could use some more theme options. Let's get together as a community and host a Theme raising (a play on the idea of the old barn raising).

We can all work/hack together to make some of the popular WordPress themes more IndieWeb friendly. We'll discuss methods for adding the necessary Microformats and best ways to indieweb-ify a WordPress theme.

Either bring your own favorite theme or work from one on a list.

All levels are welcome! This will be a workshop/hack session where we'll discuss the problems and issues related to WordPress and Microformats. Beginners and those without coding experience are welcome/encouraged to attend. We'll try to help newcomers learn to begin tinkering with some WordPress theme code. If you don't have a GitHub account yet, you might create one beforehand and we'll show you how to use it for development, but even without it you can still do a lot with just a text editor.
