Will there ever be the possibility to produce a course on a wordpress theming framework?

It is probably in the interest of many folks out there to be able to create Wordpress themes that could be sold on market places like theme forest for instance.

At present there are several frameworks to build themes with, like Genesis, Thesis, Ultimatum and more, why not having a course? I am sure many people would love it!

I too would be interested in a course on creating child themes from scratch using something like Genesis or Thesis. I was actually searching the forums to see if anyone mentioned it. Thanks!

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your exact question, but there are already projects for WP about modifying an existing theme, and creating your own from scratch.

If you can do that, you should be able to meet the requirements set by marketplaces for quality control

Kevin, I do think you are misunderstanding the question, because I am inquiring about a course which will teach how to create Wordpress themes from scratch via frameworks like the ones I have mentioned in my post. This is more of a question for Treehouse instructors, not students I believe.
