Like many in the WordPress world, I started as a cowboy coder. Editing .php files right on the FTP server? You betcha. This is a great way to develop – if you don’t mind potentially catastrophic fatal errors, and unhappy stakeholders.

I’ll share some strategies from our team at Fusion for integrating quality checks into a WordPress-specific product development process, plus some tips on keeping it fun.

This talk will introduce you to the following concepts (including easy steps you can take to followup):
– Product requirements document (PRD)
– Github workflows and code review
– Linting
– Test-driven development (TDD)
– Hackdays and team culture
