The Definitive Guide to Shopify Themes

Web Agency Bootcamp Bristol
New book by Gavin Ballard

Earlier this year I was asked if I would be willing to be the “tech reviewer” on an upcoming Apress publication on Shopify themes. Given that Louise was at the helm and Gavin was the author I jumped at the chance.

Despite being involved with content for many years it’s the first time I’ve worked with a “traditional” publisher. It’s amazing to see how much goes into a book, especially a book of this nature. Many times Gavin had to revisit completed chapters as new features, and a whole new look and feel to the Shopify admin, were announced and launched.

Gavin’s done an amazing job of guiding the reader through building a theme from concept to launch and, while I am biased, I think this book will be a fantastic addition to anyone working in the Shopify ecosystem. The book also will be accompanied by all the source code examples. I’m a big fan of Gavin and it’s great to see this come to life — it really was a pleasure to play a small part in its production.

The book is due for release in September but you can pre-order today from the Apress site.
