There has been lots of discussion around using WordPress as an app framework. In this talk, we’ll take a detailed look at the ups and downs of using WordPress to build a web app ( with:

WP REST API Endpoints
OAuth Authentication with 3rd party services
WP Cron & Job Queues
3rd Party API integrations
User Registration & Account Management
Recurring Billing
An overview and look into how all these components work together, where WordPress saved development time, and where it caused headaches.

This talk is not an endorsement or condemnation of using WordPress as an app framework. Each project is different, and the goal is to openly discuss the tradeoffs so developers can make informed decisions for their own projects.
