  • Thorsten Frommen: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the WordPress Coding Standards

    Thorsten Frommen: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the WordPress Coding Standards

    WordCamp Retreat Soltau 2018Speaker: Thorsten Frommen

    May 6, 2018 — Rules are meant to be broken. Nevertheless, rules are there for good reasons, and even more when you have a say in them.

    In this talk, Thorsten will start by providing an overview of the rules and best practices for coding in the WordPress universe. If you want to know about code style, coding standards, code conventions, code quality—and why it all matters!—this talk is for you.

    The second half of the talk will cover applying these rules via a WordPress-specific Composer package based on the well-known PHP_CodeSniffer tool. Both projects changed a lot recently, so you might learn something new. And now with Tide, this is getting more and more important for plugin and theme authors.

    Don’t forget to bring a towel!

    Denis Žoljom: Why Bother With Code Checking?

    WordCamp Zagreb 2017Speaker: Denis Žoljom

    December 20, 2017 — Coding standards provide a foundation for writing your code. If you are involved in a big project, it is imperative that the team that works with you follows the same coding practices. This is helpful during the development phase, especially while debugging and doing code reviews. The days of manual checking your code are long gone, and we have a bunch of tools that can help us with writing quality code (linters, code sniffers, unit tests). One of such tools, which is especially helpful, is PHP CodeSniffer. PHP CodeSniffer will check your PHP, JS and CSS code on the fly, and you can also write your own sniffs and define your own standards. You’ll get an overview of using phpcs, writing your own, and extending other people sniffs and standards.
