Lately I have been doing so much theme development, it’s pretty much almost all I do every single day. And I love doing it, but I never get to share my work or my code nearly as much as I would like to. For so long, I have wanted to be able to give back to open source in some way, and today I’m happy to say I am sharing a project with you all that I am having a blast working on so far.
With MaterialPress, my goal is to take that front-end framework one step further for us Pressers, by bringing these styles and interactions into a simple and easy to use WordPress theme.
MaterialPress is in extreme infancy, (I literally had the idea just a few days ago), so I am looking forward to adding more to make this a quality open source WordPress theme for those of us who love and appreciate Google’s new aesthetic.
Follow development updates on Github, or on the MaterialPress website, materialpress.me

It was such a cool atmosphere (back when I was in high school!) to see all of these designers, developers, and content creators all sharing high quality information with people they don’t even know!

If you haven’t had a chance to watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO or clips on YouTube, go watch now! As John Oliver always does, he explains and describes the problem humorously but with loads of honesty to make you stop and question some things. The clip even includes a Tennessean featured on News Channel 5 who had thousands seized by police without any crimes being committed. Continue reading John Oliver on Civil Forfeiture
