January 27, 2019 — (Hiss in Audio)
Since the introduction of the WordPress REST API, the potential for using it to power React applications has generated much excitement among developers. But what is an actual use-case for these technologies, and how can it improve the user experience? In this presentation we’ll show how WordPress was used as a foundation for building an in-gallery video kiosk for the Clyfford Still Museum.
We’ll begin by looking at the design process for a museum experience: How digital design can reflect the physical space in which it is installed, and how graphic and movement choices affect visitors’ sense of intimacy. We’ll show how the video kiosk platform was built to scale with the museum’s growing video library, how we made the videos accessible to people with hearing impairments, and how we designed the system to be content-managed from afar.
From there, we’ll demonstrate how content-management via WordPress combined with the REST API and a React front-end provide an intuitive experience for administrators and users, save development time, and provide a smooth native-app-like experience. We’ll finish by detailing the hardware used to present the system in-gallery.
January 23, 2019 — Just prior to WordCamp US 2017 I had the fun idea of creating an interactive bingo board for all of the fun and unique things that we regularly observe within our community. I was able to knock together the original concept after just a couple of hours thanks to utility provided by View and tailwind. Later I connected it to WordPress via the rest API so that I could more easily manage each of the squares available in the data set.
Here’s the specific list of the things you can expect to learn during this presentation:
* Why I chose Vue instead of React for this particular project
* Some of the neat things that Vue provides to us as developers (Vue.js 101)
* How to utilize local storage for resilience against connectivity issues and unintended browser refreshes
* The benefits of utility-based CSS classes
* How to register custom rest API endpoints
* Handling API authentication without regular users
* How you too can totally disrupt the State of the Word address
January 23, 2019 — Interacting With WordPress w/ Raspberry Pi + REST API
This talk explains through an example the possibilities around the REST API of WordPress.
We can create any kind of integration with WordPress, it’s possible to create external systems to manage all the content and information behind the CMS.
This talk uses a small device with a microprocessor, like Raspberry Pi or Tessel to show the possibility of the integrations of WordPress with IOT.
In this specific case, I’ll interact with the crowd, asking them to scream very loud, and if they reach a number of decibels some post will be published inside the CMS by the integration with the WP REST API, and they can see live in the address that I will share with them during the talk.
I’ll explain briefly how it works the WP REST API and how this integration was made.
January 8, 2019 — The use cases for the WP REST-API are truly endless. While the api has the potential to power the data for almost any non-WP application, we will discuss how the WP Rest-API can power content syndication across multiple WordPress sites for educational institutions, enterprise publishing/marketing, and even for humanitarian projects to help save lives. All of which while leveraging native WordPress features!
