I’m going to show how we can improve our code using skills from the wider PHP world. I’d like to shatter the idea that enterprise applications and WordPress don’t mix. WordPress can be a great platform to build enterprise applications.

The end result, a code base that is lean and scalable. A process that lets you bring on more developers as required. In particular, I will be discussing how to separate theme development from application development, the elegance of using MVC (Model, View, Controller), taming URL rewriting and embracing custom database tables.

Ultimately this lets developers pitch for larger projects using the skills they already have.
