    Alain Schlesser: Controlling WordPress Through The Command Line – Introduction to WP-CLI

    WordCamp Berlin 2017Speaker: Alain Schlesser

    May 22, 2017 — If you manage more than one WordPress website, you might have experienced situations where you needed to do the exact same operation on multiple websites. If you were clicking through the sites one-by-one and thinking that there should be a better way to manage what you are trying to do, I’ve got good news: there actually is!

    WP-CLI lets you control your WordPress sites through the command line, allowing you to do any operation across an arbitrary number of sites. This can save you minutes, hours, days or even weeks of work.

    I’ll start with a small introduction to the command line itself, and then continue with very easy and common scenarios where WP-CLI can save you large amounts of time with little to no effort.

    Alain Schlesser: The Secret Sauce For Writing Reusable Code

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Alain Schlesser

    October 28, 2016 — Everyone knows that you need to write reusable code to be able to grow as a developer, right?

    However, most developers struggle to understand how to split up their code to make it truly reusable, so they end up copy-pasting parts of code and modifying as needed, instead of effectively reusing the code that was already written, without a single change.

    This session explains the concept of Config files and how they allow you to cleanly separate reusable code from project-specific code.
