In this talk, Thorsten will give an overview of the PSR-7 HTTP message interfaces. After that, he will compare these with the structures of WordPress Core, and analyze whether or not they match with the PSR-7 interfaces. Finally, Thorsten will provide a closer look into an example implementation of PSR-7-compliant WordPress REST requests and responses, respectively, and explain their inner workings.
December 20, 2015 — HTTPS is The Way Forward™ for the web, as various web leaders are penalizing sites that still serve over HTTP. Search Engines are ranking insecure sites lower in search results. Browsers are limiting capabilities and stripping away features from sites serving HTTP.
This talk focuses on what HTTPS is from the very ground up, and some direction on how to set it up for your site.
December 12, 2015 — This session covers the basics of the WordPress HTTP API. More often than not, custom code uses clunky cURL functions to make remote requests. WordPress has a built in API to make this much simpler. Why not use it?
October 1, 2015 — In this session Steven will cover how you can integrate WordPress with external APIs. This will be done with the help of a creatively written story and with the help of actors who will play the part of the various stages of the API calls from retrieving the token from a server to the transaction and even the nasty old chargeback. Steven will be using the PayPal and Braintree API’s as his example API’s.
Steven’s talk will be entertainment from the very beginning, engaging young and old alike and suitable for all ages. Actors in a talk, who’d have thunk it!? Quite often developers use API’s via SDKs and don’t understand the interactions that are happening so Steven thought this would be a light hearted way to make the journey entertaining!
Steven’s talk will cover some of the following topics:
– The benefits of using the WordPress HTTP API.
– How to use the WordPress HTTP API.
– Token based authentication with an API.
– Debugging and testing APIs.

Whether you realize it or not, HTTP/2 will affect your life in the near future and I will help you understand what it all means.
