  • Luca Tumedei: Writing testable code in WordPress

    Luca Tumedei: Writing testable code in WordPress

    WordCamp Torino 2017Speaker: Luca Tumedei

    April 13, 2017 — If “WordPress is not testable” then why bother about testable code at all?

    Because writing testable code is the first step to testing your code, testing your code is the first step to testing ALL your code, testing all your code is the first step to reduce shipping times, reducing shipping times is the first step to fast response to feature requests and bugs that makes clients happy.

    And because the first sentence is less true every day.

    Let’s find a definition of “testable code” that applies to both WordPress and the current practices of testing; let’s see how we can stop ignoring the elephant in the room and embrace testing with a sane approach that improves code and coders quality without leaving anyone out in the cold.

    I will present real-world examples of new and existing code, the tools used to write and maintain testable code and some simple rule-of-thumbs to keep in mind when developing for our beloved CMS.

    Mika A. Epstein : Dependency Inferno

    WordCamp Orange County 2016Speaker: Mika Ariela Epstein

    August 17, 2016 — We want our code to be fast, to work well, and look good. But do we really need all the bells and whistles? Understanding the burdens we place on end users when we code, such as large plugins and themes with stringent requirements, is just as important as security.

  • Jason Agnew: Guilt-free Coding

    Jason Agnew: Guilt-free Coding

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Jason Agnew

    June 7, 2016 — Guilt-free Coding is a philosophy, it’s about learning to let go of the guilt that you might have for not doing something the right way, or even newest way, and accepting sometimes it’s good to give yourself a break and just get it done. In this talk, I’ll walk you through my techniques of letting go of guilt, and finding real enjoyment in learning. Applying these techniques made learning React.js a joy for me; I’ll be covering some of the successes and failures I had during this process. Don’t worry, though, I won’t be suggesting you “throw out the rulebook”, as there can be consequences in doing that.

    Thomas Deneulin : Favoriser l’industrialisation de ses dévs WP grâce à la Prog Orientée Objet

    WordCamp Paris 2016Speaker: Thomas Deneulin

    May 12, 2016 — Il est très rare que des projets WordPress débutent de manière similaire. Très souvent, on capitalise des connaissances, des bonnes pratiques et autres afin d’espérer faire mieux sur le projet suivant. Seulement, WordPress laisse énormément de libertés. Cela ne nous permet pas de contrôler notre dette technique convenablement ni même notre qualité logicielle.

    Malheureusement, le code est régulièrement mis de côté pour tenter de pallier des contraintes de temps et d’argent tout en tentant l’excuse du pragmatisme.

    Et si une approche orientée objet avec les méthodologies adéquates pouvaient résoudre une bonne partie de ces problèmes ?

    Démarrons ensemble cette approche qui, tout en améliorant la stabilité, la lisibilité et l’évolutivité de notre code, va nous permettre d’industrialiser nos développements.
