Its been a while since I’ve written anything and even longer since I’ve written about DevPress, my collaboration with some awesome WordPress developers. Things are busy.
The latest thing keeping me busy was the launch of DevPress’ new theme: Visual. Its a simple photoblog theme with support for the BuddyPress social network plugin. It’s made for keeping family photos, staying connected with friends, and/or running your own photos community.
Visual is the follow up to our incredibly popular News theme (~3,000 downloads a week). The DevPress team prides itself on simple, easy to use, yet powerful code. I have to say, we’ve nailed it with both of these themes. Visual is quite powerful, especially when paired with BuddyPress.
Please check it out and let us know what you think.
How many dreams do you get to realize in your lifetime? Ever since I’ve been comfortable coding for WordPress I’ve had the dream of working with a team as motivated and fascinated with WordPress as I am. You might be thinking to yourself, “that’s a lame dream.” If all I wanted was to work with other WP developers … sure, it’d be lame.
But the underlying requirement to such a project is the participation of the kind of people that are the best at what they do. Accepting anything less than this would simply make for another company doing the same thing as the rest.
DevPress seeks to be the very best at an array of WordPress solutions. It’s as simple as that, but such a simple statement is much weightier than it sounds. It doesn’t emphasize that we really do mean the very best.
Who are we talking about then? Who is this team of WordPress
rockstars ninjas ordinary guys that plan on producing the very best WordPress design and code?
- Justin Tadlock – Founder of Theme Hybrid, Justin runs one of the most active WordPress theme frameworks and it’s community. He’s produced several well-known themes and plugins and the Hybrid theme alone has been downloaded from the WordPress repository nearly 100,000 times. He has a reputation for well-planned, clean code and will ensure all DevPress work is just as great.
- Ptah Dunbar – Another theme framework author, Ptah created WP Framework with a clear understanding of how WordPress operates. To further that, he contributed much of what you now know as the WordPress 3.0 menu system. Ptah brings nothing less than pure WordPress and programmer expertise to DevPress.
- Tung Do – More well known as Small Potato, Tung is credited for being one of the first to bring premium WordPress themes to market. He ran an extremely successful marketplace for a while before deciding to take a WordPress hiatus. Since then, Tung’s design skills have only improved and he brings to DevPress some incredible looking work.
Between the four of us, we’re confident we’ll offer some of the best WordPress products available.
It won’t be long before we launch and there are many more details to share. So go to http://devpress.com/ to be notified when we launch. You can also follow us @devpress.
