What is a fork? Well, essentially taking a copy of someone else’s code and developing on it yourself. A lot of popular plugins you use today began as forks, such as WooCommerce and many others. So, when is forking right and when is it wrong? Learn about what a fork is and how you can use third party code to create unique and meaningful solutions. Let’s discover the history and debate around forking in the WordPress, the community, and beyond.

This presentation will be light on code and geared towards WordPress users who understand the underlying principles of WordPress and General Public License (GPL).
