Improved Ajax in WordPress: Procedural Programming

Years ago, I wrote a series of posts for Envato walking readers through how to use Ajax in WordPress.

Then, not long ago, I provided an updated walkthrough of how to do so with better practices (thanks to @gmazzap for the code review on that one).

One purpose of this blog is to provide articles for others who are getting started in WordPress development. That is, I want to share the things I’ve learned to help shortcut others’ learning.

Sometimes, this requires updating old content. Or it requires providing new ways of doing things already discussed.

Case in point: Using Ajax in WordPress.

Close The Gender Gap in STEM

For anyone who is involved in technology right now, odds are that you’re aware of the gender gap in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). It’s a hot topic – and it should be – but the degree to which you’re aware of it probably varies.

At least, that’s what seems to be my own experience.

Personally, I’m actively working to educate myself on the topic; however, I’ve spoken with a number of women in tech who are much more aware of the issues than I am and who are willing to help educate.

If I can be honest, I’ve a vested interest in the topic for a couple of reasons.

Please leave your comments on the original article.For those who are just getting started in WordPress development, one of the more challenging aspects of working with some of the extended APIs is that of WordPress taxonomies.
