October 29, 2016 — Here at Level Level we created an Open Source Twig based plugin ‘Clarkson Core’: a template engine with under the hood a collection of Object-oriented WordPress classes and some lightweight handy features.
This, in combination with a basic modern starter-theme and some agreed upon guidelines, contributes to a workflow that keeps comprehensive projects aligned with our technical goals. Meanwhile keeping the WordPress way of development in mind.
Currently every new project runs upon the Clarkson stack resulting in a variety of already delivered websites like Autotaalglas, Elsevier.nl, Kansfonds, SOMO and more. Our goals were to deliver maintainable, high quality and stable code that kept running after every automated deployment without having to hold our breath.

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.

September 4, 2016 — In this session, I’ll demonstrate how I pushed my limits in WordPress development by building a custom WordPress slider for a client website. I hope you will be inspired to take on challenging projects even though you might not know the outcome. In this project, I realized that advanced client specs aren’t indomitable; they are catalysts in pushing skills as a person and developer.

With websites growing in complexity we have an increasing need for better tools to help build, test, and monitor our code.
