August 28, 2019 — Now that WordPress has committed to a minimum requirement of PHP 7 by the end of 2019, we can all start looking at modernising the code we maintain. Removing hacks to support old versions is easy, but how can code be improved when it just works on PHP 7? Namespaces, generators, Intl are just a few of the features introduced since PHP 5.2, not to mention scalar type declarations and all the other awesomeness that came with PHP 7. But what does it all mean, and how can you take advantage of these goodies? Join Juliette to learn to identify where to make quick fixes, when to look into refactoring, and how to make your code faster, better and more secure by using modern PHP.
August 28, 2019 — For nearly a decade, developers have been encouraged to use custom post types and taxonomies for all of their needs, and life was good. Good enough, anyway. For the next decade of advanced computing, machine intelligence will require, at the very least, custom database tables. John will break down what a database really is and what WordPress got right and wrong, and share several solutions that plugin developers can use right now to interface with complex custom data structures inside of WordPress.

August 4, 2019 — As a developer in the WordPress ecosystem, you’re part of a large open source community; and being part of a community, being a good neighbour goes a long way. You’re thinking of or already developing components for WordPress, but developing is just the beginning: allowing your code to be used or modified easily will get you more goodwill within the community. That means documentation; meaning useful code comments, user manuals and API docs.
We’ll discuss documentation standards, best practices, and how to make your users and other developers sing your praises.
July 7, 2019 — I recently joined Dow Jones as a WP developer. I discovered not everyone was a WP developer but PHP or other developers who did some WordPress. I had to figure out how to win adoption of ‘the WordPress way’ across multiple countries, devs, stakeholders, & online publications. We also had to make sure that legacy plugins, tools, etc kept up with the new changes of WordPress 5. I’ll share how I won adoption and coordination by using Git for collaboration, regularly scheduled meetings (without death by meetings), & creating standards. I’ll also give a peek at pitfalls to avoid when trying to work within org that never did remote before & worked with multiple outside agencies.
