I recently found a quote that I feel is something I aim to be living by :
“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”
― Maya Angelou
This quote really sums up the person I try to be. A long time ago I decided to not try and just fit in, to go with the flow of everyone else. I decided to push through and make my own way.
So, who am I and what are my credentials
Before I begin, my name is Sean, and I’m the creator of Thesis Theme Tips.
I went back into education. I got a bachelors degree in Computer Science. I’ve worked from some large companies and always tried to think outside of the box.
I’ve always had a passion for computers and software development – to create something that will make other peoples lives easier and more enriched.
A lot of what I have developed were back-end server systems. Software that was written in C/C++. This has been interesting and fun, though working with such system means a lack of UX and UI.
I’m very visual orientated. So, to stimulate that part of my brain, I started to create websites. I did this by creating HTML code. Then I found WordPress which made my creative life richer. Here was a CMS that I could use, a CMS that had thousands of themes and plugins that I could work with and customise.
I originally edited free themes to fit my needs. I soon learned about theme frameworks and have used most of them now. From Genesis to Catalyst (now Dynamik). I’ve used frameworks such as Ultimatum, where you build your theme from the ground up. I’ve worked with Divi theme and builder, and many others
Recently I started working with Thesis. This, I have found, a very interesting pick indeed. It has the code elements I crave and a visual build element.
Why did I create this site?
This site, which is an ongoing project, is to document the things I learn and to give step by step tutorials on how to do a number of fantastic things in Thesis. The aim is to make this THE resource you go to for you Thesis Framework needs and help.
