This talk will cover how JavaScript has been used with WordPress in the past, and how it will be used going forward. Instead of proposing one single method or framework to use when coding JavaScript, we will go through a few different combinations you’ll see in the wild in both older and more forward-looking WordPress plugins. Examples will cover AJAX with jQuery, ES6, the Heartbeat API, REACT, and Gutenberg blocks.

After this talk, attendees should feel more comfortable opening up any JS file they come across in the WordPress world and knowing a bit more about how to work with the various frameworks and patterns in use.
