Research Progress: Cases and Twentyseventeen

Cases and Twentyseventeen
Cases and Twentyseventeen

Now I have read all the available WordPress cases on the BAAA server. I have followed the development of the Twentyseventeen core theme. In both cases the reading should be followed by interviews.

And then the next logical step is to select the most relevant cases. Each case is surrounded by a small group of stakeholders, such as:

  • The business
  • Contact persons in the business
  • Students
  • Teachers at the BAAA

Twentyseventeen is perhaps the most important case. Because here you can see the interaction between Automattic and the open source community. Twentyseventeen is integrated in the WordPress-core, therefore it is not a trivial matter.

By now I can see, that the Multimedia studens work hard with tweaking themes and child themes. Some of them even write their responsive themes from scratch.

In the end I hope, that the research will show:

  • How WordPress is created.
  • How WordPress solutions are used in danish and international businesses.

In the end these answers will form the answer to my initial quest: “What You Should Know About WordPress”.
