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.
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).
At the end of the day, React rocks (it’s the best), but it might not be the best solution for your project …
August 2, 2016 — React is becoming a popular choice of JS framework for building interactive features into custom WordPress themes. But why is this? And what exactly is it good for?
In this talk, I’ll use case studies to show you where React-powered interfaces can be a great way to improve the experience for the user.
I’ll also give an introduction to how React works, show a little code and tell you a little about my journey into the realms of amongst other things npm, webpack, linting and flux.
“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.
June 30, 2016 — n this talk we’ll discover the breadth of new WordPress interfaces enabled by leveraging the WordPress REST API, such as visualizations and new editor experiences. How can our API client libraries and the applications that use them be designed for maximum flexibility? The future of WordPress is not one interface, but many.
June 30, 2016 — Come on a journey through all things WordPress REST API, we don’t have much time so strap yourselves in!
Expect many code examples, case studies, visualisations and metaphors; if you do get lost, be consoled by the fact that Joe is almost certainly lost too!
Some of the key areas they’d like to highlight during their talk are the RESTful API integrations with WordPress, whenever it’s exposing WordPress functionality through use of WordPress REST API 2.0 Plugin, or integration with external services and how this can be done with technologies such as AngularJS.
