October 2, 2015 — The WordPress REST API is a simple but powerful way to interact with WordPress. There is also a 2.0 Beta available on Github which is being actively maintained and updated as the project works it’s way into WordPress core. Ryan started this project as a WordPress Google Summer of Code project and it has been growing in leaps and bounds since that project started.
This project will affect everyone who works with WordPress! The WordPress REST API will change the way use WordPress as it’s not only able to expose WordPress content, meta, users and media in JSON. You can easily extend the API to expose content and settings from custom post types you’ve created and plugins that you have developed. Not only can you view the data but you can perform any CRUD activities provided you’re authenticated via the API’s endpoints.
This means that you can use mobile, desktop and web applications that you create in any programming language or framework and update your WordPress data without having to login to WordPress. This will really make it a lot easier to use “WordPress as an application framework”. Ryan’s talk will cover the project goals and will make you excited about the future of WordPress!
October 1, 2015 — In this session Steven will cover how you can integrate WordPress with external APIs. This will be done with the help of a creatively written story and with the help of actors who will play the part of the various stages of the API calls from retrieving the token from a server to the transaction and even the nasty old chargeback. Steven will be using the PayPal and Braintree API’s as his example API’s.
Steven’s talk will be entertainment from the very beginning, engaging young and old alike and suitable for all ages. Actors in a talk, who’d have thunk it!? Quite often developers use API’s via SDKs and don’t understand the interactions that are happening so Steven thought this would be a light hearted way to make the journey entertaining!
Steven’s talk will cover some of the following topics:
– The benefits of using the WordPress HTTP API.
– How to use the WordPress HTTP API.
– Token based authentication with an API.
– Debugging and testing APIs.

September 26, 2015 — I would like to speak about WordPress JSON API and new possibility what developer can do with WordPress. With REST API now we can easily fetch content in JSON format, but we can also much easily communicate between frontend and backend. The idea is to motivate developer to use API for creating new cool things with WordPress.
August 6, 2015 — As we move toward the “Semantic Web” or “Web 3.0″, the power of well defined, accessible information is getting greater and greater by the day.
In this talk, we look at the way that data and the web are changing, and the possibilities that are created by allowing your data and your design to exist independently.
August 3, 2015 — WordPress can do a lot out of the box, but what if you need to integrate with a service that doesn’t have a WordPress plugin? What if you want to automate a task without touching code? How do you take advantage of the service-driven web so your WordPress project can break out of its shell and make new friends on the Internet playground? This talk has all the answers. You learn how to connect to a remote API (with minimal code), what webhooks are (and why they’re awesome), and how to harness the power of “connector” services like Zapier and IFTTT to automate common tasks (without getting a headache). Want to get more power out of your WordPress site? This is the talk for you!
August 1, 2015 — WordPress core contributor Taylor Lovett covers why the new JSON REST API (proposed for WordPress 4.1) is so awesome, as well as explains some cool things you can do with it and how you can start using it today.
