    Bernhard Kau: Automated deployments for plugins with GitHub Actions

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: Bernhard Kau

    November 11, 2019 — Plugin development is fun! But deploying a new version of a plugin to the WordPress.org Plugin Directory using SVN is a pain! We usually develop plugins using Git, hosting the code on GitHub. But up until this year, deploying those plugins to the plugin directory was a rather hard manual task.

    Now with the new GitHub actions becoming available for all repositories, we can utilize pre-defined automated tasks to deploy a new version of a plugin. It’s even possible to just update the readme file, which is even more complicated in the current Subversion environment.

    This talk will show you, how you can use GitHub actions to make your life as a plugin developer a lot easier and bringing back the fun to develop plugins.

  • David Remer: Understanding git

    David Remer: Understanding git

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: David Remer

    November 11, 2019 — When you start collaborating on open source projects or in development teams, Git is a tool you can’t evade. Even WordPress development shifts more and more towards Git.

    Git is a powerful version control system, but even for advanced users it is often quite intimidating. Understanding some of the principals on which Git operates helps a long way in mastering this tool.

    After a quick introduction into Git I will examine those principals. Along the way, we will try to recover code, which we thought was lost forever. The aim of this presentation is to gain a better understanding of Git so beginners feeling more comfortable to contribute to open source projects.

A slow site means lost time & revenue. But figuring out how to speed up a slow site can be HARD.
