  • Evan Volgas: The WordPress REST API – What It Is, Why it Matters, and What You Need to Know About It

    Evan Volgas: The WordPress REST API – What It Is, Why it Matters, and What You Need to Know About It

    WordCamp Asheville 2016Speaker: Evan Volgas

    July 26, 2016 — WordPress 4.4 was released on Dec 8, 2015. It was the first WordPress release to include the infrastructure for a REST API directly in the core codebase. If you’re not familiar with what that means, then the following claim will probably sound like gobbledy gook to you: the inclusion of a REST API for WordPress is arguably one of the most significant changes to be made to the core codebase in years. This talk will help you understand why.

    This talk will be aimed at WordPress professionals of all stripes. Whether you are a developer, designer, business owner, or blogger, you should be paying attention to the REST API in WordPress and why it’s so important (and so powerful) for the future of WordPress applications.

    In this talk, we’ll discuss what APIs and what it means for them to be RESTful. We’ll talk about why APIs are important in the first place and what having a RESTful one in the core of WordPress means, in real terms. Last, we will talk about the status of the REST API and the efforts that are underway to integrate it more fully with the core.

    If you’re a business owner, designer, blogger, or WordPress developer who’s maybe heard of the WordPress API but you don’t really know what it is or why it’s important, you’ll probably get the most out of this talk.

    If you are a polyglot developer with a fair amount of experience working directly with RESTful APIs, this talk will probably be too basic for you.

    If you’re completely new to WordPress and haven’t done much more than publish a few blog posts and install a few plugins, there’s a chance this talk will be a bit intimidating for you (although honestly I hope it won’t be and you should be brave and come anyway and make me explain anything that didn’t make sense to you… I’m more than happy to do so).

    Takeaways:

    What is an API and why do we care about them?
    How is the REST API in WordPress different from all those other APIs they have floating around in the WordPress Core? Is this one different somehow or is it just another API? (Hint: it’s very much the former.)
    What does a RESTful API for WordPress mean for me as a designer? As a blogger? As a business owner or entrepreneur? As a developer?

    Maxime Bernard-Jacquet: Comment l’API Rest WP va changer notre avenir

    WordCamp Paris 2016Speaker: Maxime Bernard-Jacquet

    May 16, 2016 — L’API Rest arrive dans le core WordPress et va nous ouvrir les portes de nouveaux usages, qui vont très surement révolutionner notre utilisation de WordPress à terme. Qu’est-ce qu’une API avant tout ? Quel est le principe de fonctionnement de base de l’API Rest de WordPress ? Quels usages vont apparaitre avec elle ? Des thèmes plus dynamiques, des nouvelles interfaces backend (en faisant la correspondance à ce que Calypso a déjà accompli), l’interconnexion avec d’autres systèmes (par exemple les apps mobiles natives), et les possibles produits qui vont en découler (par exemple WP en tant que backend CMS pour l’édition de contenus d’apps mobile…)

  • Justin Sainton: Intro to WP-API

    Justin Sainton: Intro to WP-API

    WordCamp Cape Town 2015Speaker: Justin Sainton

    February 11, 2016 — The WP REST API is slated to be included into WordPress this year. This is one of the most drastic shifts (if not the most drastic) in the WordPress landscape. Companies like Wired.com, the New York Times and Rant Sports are using the API today to craft incredible experiences on top of WordPress. We often talk of vanity metrics, ideas like “WordPress runs 23% of the web”. Once the WP REST API is in WordPress, these become meaningless. WordPress will eventually be running parts of 100% of the web. This talk outlines the history of the API, the differences between the current stable version and what will likely be in WordPress, as well as paradigms and patterns within the project and some practical examples of how it might be used.
