It was an honor to speak at WordCamp Toronto Aug 6 on:
The venue Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University was fantastic and the classroom setting was a perfect fit for the talk. Unfortunately the video is not yet available on line. I will update this post as soon as it is available.
It was a delight to speak at WordCamp NYC hosted at the UN, in the lightning talk How to beat developers block. I showed how to break out of the rat race by changing your perspective.
The video is not yet on line.
In the talk; Unlock the awesome power of WordPress through mu-plugins, I demonstrated the basic principles of extending WordPress, through the use of mechanisms like mu-plugins and other customizable elements. Have you ever wanted to write a plugin but felt intimidated by PHP? Are you a back-end developer who is aesthetically challenged or do you wish to comprehend the mysteries of the mu-plugin?
This talk offers something for everyone by explaining concepts through code and other demonstrable examples. Attendees will come away with a greater understanding of WordPress’s extensible systems.
