Hooks give end users a chance to write custom code that safely alters the behavior of WordPress core, plugins and themes – all without modifying the core, plugin or theme code itself.

In this talk, we’ll go over basic usage of WordPress hooks, and we’ll explore ways to find the right hook when you have a need for custom functionality. We’ll also talk about how easy it is to create your own hooks, and how important it is to do so when creating plugins and themes.

Take aways:

Learn how WordPress is listening for you to run your own code at certain key points.
Safely alter or add to the behavior of WordPress core, themes, and plugins.
Give others a chance to expand upon your own code as they see fit.
