January 18, 2016 — What to do when things get funky? During my talk about the tools and approaches to debugging within WordPress, I’ll review my own experiences in confronting various bugs and issues that everyone encounters from time to time.
December 11, 2015 — Earlier this year, we released a bug fix for one of the most complex and severe security issues WordPress has ever had – the Trojan Emoji bug. (So good it got its own name!)
In this talk, we’ll take a look at the initial report, reconstruct how we got to the eventual solution, and discuss what we learned along the way.
December 7, 2015 — John is talking about why, as a developer, you should treat debugging as a key skill that you should practice and become proficient at. He’ll talk about some tools and processes for modern and efficient debugging of the front end and the back end, and how processes such as testing and version control can aid your debugging.
September 17, 2015 — The art of debugging code requires a good understanding of the codebase and logical deduction skills. A good debugging tool is like a code mentor that can walk you through the code and help you better understand what is going on, but the deductive reasoning is still up to you. In this session, you will learn how to use Xdebug, a PHP debugging tool to.
August 26, 2015 — Egal, ob wir uns mit WordPress im Hinblick auf Anwendung, Entwicklung, Design oder ein Geschäftsmodell befassen – immer hängt unsere persönliche Erfahrung von Zufriedenheit und Erfolg mit der Erfüllung (oder Nichterfüllung) unserer Erwartungen zusammen.
Erwartungen kann man „debuggen“, also auf Fehler in ihrem Kern hin untersuchen, und gefundene Fehler beseitigen; die eigenen am schnellsten, die von Anderen bis an die natürliche Grenze der individuellen Persönlichkeit.
Gedebuggte Erwartungen heilen Wunden, vertreiben Trolle, beenden Kriege, umarmen verlorene Söhne und Töchter, lassen Sterntaler regnen und rosa Einhörner in deinem Wohnzimmer erscheinen.
August 17, 2015 — Saviez vous que vous pouviez regarder a votre code en temps réel? Avec un débogeur on peur regarder a n’importe quel variable a n’importe quel temps. On peut aussi pauser le code sur n’importe quel ligne et faire des modifications en temps réel. Dans cette présentation on va découvrir avec l’aide de PHPstorm et Xdebug pourquoi add_action a été appeller. Pourquoi notre fonction retourne la mauvaise valeur et plus!
July 17, 2015 — WordPress has thousands of themes and plugins freely available. Not all of them are coded beautifully or tested with big WordPress sites. When a bad piece of code goes live on a WordPress site, it can slow down site and even crash server in some cases.
Goal of this session is to show how EasyEngine and other tools/techniques can be used to debug performance bottleneck on a WordPress site.
July 16, 2015 — The quickest way to damage your reputation is by releasing a plugin or theme full of bugs. And no, a few unit tests are not going to stop that from happening! In this talk, I share my experience in testing the WordPress plugins I’ve developed and we’ll dig into Codeception, an advanced PHP testing framework.
May 30, 2015 — WP-CLI
Tom explains what WP CLI is, introduces three useful commands you can use, and explains how to find out more.
Catering for WordPress
This talk is a whistle stop tour of how WordPress was used to create an intranet for businesses in the restaurant / catering industry. Some of the features include help plan and budget dishes and menus, work out costings for bulk recipes down to individual portions and include other factors such as VAT and a variable gross profit.
Custom Post Type Meta
Over the course of many WordPress site builds, Mark found a constant problem when dealing with custom post types: he wanted to add meta data to a post type like you do a post. In this talk Mark gives a brief overview of why he needed to be able to do this and how he went about it, building a plugin to provide this functionality.
Cleaner Themes and Plugins
Miles talks about creating cleaner themes and plugins, moving towards using mvc in plugin and theme creation.
John talks about why you should treat debugging as a key skill that you should practice and become proficient at. He’ll show you a few tools and processes for modern and efficient debugging of the front end and the back end.
