The following is a guest post by TJ Fogarty. TJ pitched me some ideas for articles and I latched on to this one right away. I've heard this same sentiment from a few other people. Then on a bit of investigation, I can understand why. As you'll soon see, not only do you get a lovely syntax to work with while working with themes, but it separates concerns a bit better. It's almost like a normal theme file gets split into a controller and a view, in a sense. I've spent a good portion of my professional career working with WordPress, and I've come to learn a couple of things: Popularity breeds contempt, and to dismiss something based solely on the critiques of others is a missed opportunity. WordPress and I started out great, but as time went on we became more and more distant. It's not that we were spending less time together, but it felt like we were just going through the motions. The spark was fading, yet I still knew it was a very important part of what I do. Sometimes change is needed, and that's when Timber reintroduced us. I get that WordPress isn't the perfect tool for everything or everyone, but then what is? There's a time and a place for it, and I'm hoping to map out some roads
