To summarize, I covered the following topics:
The video has finally been published on WordCamp.tv and I’m sharing it as well as the accompanying slides below, as well.
How To Level-Up Your WordPress Development Skills
The video clocks at 40 minutes and this includes the introduction, the talk, and the question and answer session following the talk.
In the video, I cover the following topics:
- The WordPress APIs: How To Find Them, What They Are, and How To Use Them
- The Coding Standards: What They Are, Why You Should Always Follow Them
- The Importance of Finding a Niche: Know Your Target Market, Strategies For Pursuing It
- Educating Yourself: You’re Never Done, Tips on How To Do So
If you’re interested in following along, you can use the slides below as they correspond to what I used during the talk.
Overall, I really enjoyed speaking at WordCamp, but I’d have to say that I enjoyed meeting and chatting with others after the talk.
It’s clear that there’s more than an abundance of interest in increasing their WordPress development skills – hopefully the talk provided a guide and some guardrails for what to do, what to avoid, and things to practice when working to level-up your own skills.
As I look forward to the next year, I’m eager to begin giving other talks on the subject and those tangentially related.
I’ve already got a few things planning for the coming months, and my team and 8BIT and I are looking to provide similar events here in Atlanta later this year.
