    Marius Veltan: Writing WordPress Code That’s Universal

    WordCamp Belgrade 2015Speaker: Marius Veltan

    September 27, 2015 — I work in the client support team at Presslabs. On a daily basis, we come across issues that our clients face due to plugins and themes not being implemented according to WordPress standards, not being cache-friendly, not going by RFC recommendations, interfering with other plugins and the list goes on. The presentation will outline useful advice for writing WordPress code that is universal and does not necessitate adjusting after switching the theme, activating a plugin or moving to a different host.

    Tom McFarlin: TL;DR – The Importance of Following the WordPress Coding Standards

    WordCamp Atlanta 2015Speaker: Tom McFarlin

    April 17, 2015 — Sounds boring, right? Maybe. But how many times have you inherited code from someone else only to find yourself spending half the time on the project trying to figure out what was going on with the code. This is a point of frustration that developers have all felt at some point or another especially when inheriting projects from another agency or another group of programmers. But it doesn’t have to be this way! In fact, coding standards make it possible to actually minimize frustration both for us and our peers.

    Konstantin Obenland: Inside Underscores

    WordCamp Europe 2014Speaker: Konstantin Obenland

    February 17, 2015 — Underscores has become the go to tool for many theme developers, as their starting point when creating a new theme. It’s the semi-standard for the WordPress.org Theme Repository, and the origin for all themes launched on WordPress.com in the past three years. In this presentation we’re taking a look back at its origins, its successes, and most importantly, its most recent improvements. Including a feature update that supercharges Underscores.me, and will change how developers will interact with WordPress starter themes for years to come.

    Tabby Chapman: Functions.php And How To Quit It

    WordCamp Vancouver 2014Speaker: Tabby Chapman

    September 15, 2014 — When developing a theme for a client, it’s super easy to throw all of the new functions and hooks into the theme’s functions.php file, wipe your hands, congratulate yourself for a hard day’s work and go have a beer. But, after a while, have you stopped to see the size of that functions.php file? It can be massive! It’s easy to create a large disorganized functions.php file with so many tutorials out there giving you little tips and tricks on hooks and doodads that you can add to the site to make it fancy. “Ohh! Look at this code that changes my background color based on weather patterns! I’ll just… put this… right… here… *drops in functions.php file* This session is about why you don’t want to fill up your functions.php file, the proper way to add code to your site, and why it’s proper for readability, security and extendability.
