Web application developers often can feel stuck in a rut when developing a new application. There are various basics that every app needs, user management, data entry, etc. WordPress solves all these challenges, and provides an extensible way to record, save and display data. With the introduction of the WP Rest API, WordPress has become an ever more desirable Web Application Platform.
At my full-time job we are in the process of converting our college website to WordPress, and we are building a way to distribute News and Events throughout our WordPress Multi-Site Network, as well as third-party systems. I’ll share the progress we’ve made thus far, as well as plans for future growth. I’ll also share why we decided to build this way, and how other apps could be developed similarly.
