    Re: what’s wrong with this? (at 6:10, slide 31 ) shoudn’t div=”pw_box” be class= ?
    OH I see you fixed it in slide 37. But is “id=” right? What if I use the shortcode more than once?

    Two typos in slide 49.

This session focuses on developing WordPress plugins that are easily extendable by other developers. The idea is to build plugins that not only allow you to add-on and extend the plugin, but also allow other developers to create extensions and modifications without ever modifying the core source code of the plugin.
