  • Julien Melissas: JS Framework Showdown

    Julien Melissas: JS Framework Showdown

    WordCamp Asheville 2016Speaker: Julien Melissas

    August 19, 2016 — I’m going to be speaking about some of the more popular JS frameworks, Angular, Backbone, and React, and show some real-world examples of how easily they can interact with the API.

    I’ll be showing (and possibly live-coding) basic examples with each library and fetching the 10 latest posts from the WP-API.

    Take aways:

    The WP-API isn’t that scary, it’s so easy to get/send stuff if you’ve got JSON skills (which aren’t that hard).
    JavaScript frameworks all have different ways to do things, but similar stuff going on in the background.
    At the end of the day, React rocks (it’s the best), but it might not be the best solution for your project …

    James Tien: PHP First to JavaScript First – The WordPress.com Story 〜WordPress.com (Calypso) が JavaScript ファーストを

    WordCamp Kansai 2016Speaker: James Tien

    July 19, 2016 — The Tale of Calypso – Why WordPress.com Chose JavaScript-First Approach.

    “What would we build if we were starting from scratch today, knowing all we’ve learned over the past 13 years of building WordPress?” At the beginning of 2014, the folks at Automattic asked themselves this question. The result is what now known as Calypso. It is not only a product combining some latest web technology, but also the demonstration of what we see as the future of WordPress. In this session, we cover a brief history about the evolving of Calypso, how we chose our development stack, what we learned from it, and what potential it shows to us.

  • Matías Ventura: A look into Calypso

    Matías Ventura: A look into Calypso

    WordCamp Europe 2016Speaker: Matías Ventura

    June 30, 2016 — The introduction of Calypso has brought the notion of a modern JavaScript approach to the front and center of the WordPress community. What does an admin UI built entirely in JavaScript (with technologies like React that have taken the JavaScript community by storm) mean for WordPress and how we think of JavaScript in the project? Explain some of Calypso’s core development values that have driven us from the very start at Automattic. How does it look internally and why it’s not powered by any “framework”? How can you get started, contribute, and begin making cool things with it?
