February 11, 2016 — The WP REST API is slated to be included into WordPress this year. This is one of the most drastic shifts (if not the most drastic) in the WordPress landscape. Companies like Wired.com, the New York Times and Rant Sports are using the API today to craft incredible experiences on top of WordPress. We often talk of vanity metrics, ideas like “WordPress runs 23% of the web”. Once the WP REST API is in WordPress, these become meaningless. WordPress will eventually be running parts of 100% of the web. This talk outlines the history of the API, the differences between the current stable version and what will likely be in WordPress, as well as paradigms and patterns within the project and some practical examples of how it might be used.
December 27, 2015 — Rewrite API е едно от най-полезните WordPress API-та, но често бива пренебрегвано. В тази презентация ще го разгледаме под капака, запознавайки се с неговите характеристики, архитектура и особености. Ще разгледаме различните му компоненти – rules, tags, endpoints, permastructs и ще ги демонстрираме с прости примери.
December 13, 2015 — Learn to use WordPress’s built in functionality (especially the HTTP library) to integrate with external APIs. We’ll touch on properly caching results to keep your site fast, fault tolerance, and even how to handle those strange APIs that send you data when you didn’t send a request for it (PayPal IPNs anyone?). We’ll talk theory, but mostly we’ll look at plenty of code and walk through examples from plugins that you can constantly refer back to for example code.
December 12, 2015 — This session covers the basics of the WordPress HTTP API. More often than not, custom code uses clunky cURL functions to make remote requests. WordPress has a built in API to make this much simpler. Why not use it?
December 11, 2015 — WordPress is coming of age as an application platform. Plugins like WP-API 2.0 and the JSON REST API have arrived, opening up new opportunities for how websites and applications are constructed with WordPress as a CMS. More and more developers are discovering the benefits of “decoupled” development for websites and applications, where the front-end client (website, native mobile, desktop) is built as a separate system from the CMS itself.
December 4, 2015 — With the REST API shortly due to be merged into WordPress core, this will be a talk/workshop about advanced theming techniques that allow theme developers to utilise it. The session will take the shape of a background to the WP REST API and how it works, and an exploration of building themes that mix best practice, current theming techniques with pioneering theming techniques of the future.
November 18, 2015 — A common refrain when building software is “think of the user first!” Let’s take a look at how we define our users, how that shapes what we build for them, and what that might mean for the holy grail of a core fields API.
