May 23, 2014 — One of the more frustrating aspects of WordPress if being able to design your URLs to work exactly as you want them to. WordPress has a “rewrite” system that is powerful but is hard to learn and even when learned there are many URL formats WordPress will simply refuse to allow you to implement.
The talk shows a technique to allow you to design your site’s URLs to work exactly like you want them to work. And it does it using just one hook in WordPress and with a few edge case exceptions you can easily manage, WordPress behaves exactly as if WordPress rewrote the URL for you.
May 11, 2014 — This presentation walks through a few of the biggest WordPress tips, features, and tricks we wish we’d known more about when starting developing on the platform. Topics covered are custom post types, user logins, WordPress multisite, WordPress as a CMS, and eCommerce.
May 10, 2014 — Being a WordPress developer is about a lot more than just making a ‘functional site.’ This talk examines what ‘client-first development’ means, looking at the role of Theme Options, the appropriate use of Custom Post Types and Custom Meta Boxes (including meta box descriptions).
May 2, 2014 — Have you ever activated a plugin just to see the White Screen of Death? Have you ever uploaded a file to a client’s site and realized you overwrote an important fix? Have you ever started a WordPress update and then had your site stuck in maintenance mode?
Most WordPress developers have done all of these things, probably more than once. In this talk, you’ll learn how to be prepared for situations like these, or even prevent them completely.
This talk is aimed at developers of any skill level, though more advanced developers might already be familiar with some of these best practices.

March 24, 2014 — Frustrated with building WordPress sites? I’ve been there. Travelling, I often find myself with unreliable internet, and I realized that my development process needed an overhaul. So, late one night working with the geckos in Cambodia, I set about optimizing the process. After a great deal of trial and error, I developed a series of tools that will allow anyone to better manage their WordPress development practices.
March 21, 2014 — 10 ans déjà que la première version de WordPress est sortie. Hériter du projet b2, il s’est enrichi au fur à et mesure des années de milliers de lignes de code pour donner naissance à toutes les super fonctionnalités que nous connaissons aujourd’hui.
Cette présentation portera sur le code source originel de 2003, toutes ses évolutions majeures depuis et sur comment WordPress en est venu à équiper près de 20% du web tout en continuant d’intégrer de nouvelles fonctionnalités. Tout ça pour en faire le meilleur outil de gestion de contenu qui existe.
February 20, 2014 — Often occurs wrong thinking that writing Unit Tests and Test-driven development are the same. In fact, these are two different practices that perfectly complemented by a third – refactoring. Together, they allow us to make better design and our code to be easier to maintain. Part of the lecture will discuss the practices and their application in general, and another part will examine how the they are in the PHP world and WordPress.
