June 2, 2019 — En esta charla vamos a ver un ejemplo práctico de por qué WordPress es mucho más que un gestor de contenidos web. Gracias a la WP REST API podemos hacer que nuestra instalación de WordPress se conecte con cualquier tipo de aplicación.
Si lo combinamos con ACF para crear nuestros campos personalizados, nos va a quedar un resultado de cine.
Conoceremos algunos fundamentos básicos de la REST API para, posteriormente, hacer un ver cómo crear endpoints personalizados, customizando la REST API con los datos que nos devuelven los custom fields de ACF.
April 7, 2019 — For those who have never used the REST API but know basic PHP, this talk will cover how to make a basic endpoint, how to use it on the frontend, and how to convert AJAX calls.
March 29, 2019 — There so much power behind the WordPress REST API. This session will guide you through building a mini theme using the WordPress REST API. Learn how the REST API can be used not just in a theme, but for a mobile app, a plugin, a Gutenberg block, and beyond!

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
