December 4, 2015 — With the REST API shortly due to be merged into WordPress core, this will be a talk/workshop about advanced theming techniques that allow theme developers to utilise it. The session will take the shape of a background to the WP REST API and how it works, and an exploration of building themes that mix best practice, current theming techniques with pioneering theming techniques of the future.
October 2, 2015 — The WordPress REST API is a simple but powerful way to interact with WordPress. There is also a 2.0 Beta available on Github which is being actively maintained and updated as the project works it’s way into WordPress core. Ryan started this project as a WordPress Google Summer of Code project and it has been growing in leaps and bounds since that project started.
This project will affect everyone who works with WordPress! The WordPress REST API will change the way use WordPress as it’s not only able to expose WordPress content, meta, users and media in JSON. You can easily extend the API to expose content and settings from custom post types you’ve created and plugins that you have developed. Not only can you view the data but you can perform any CRUD activities provided you’re authenticated via the API’s endpoints.
This means that you can use mobile, desktop and web applications that you create in any programming language or framework and update your WordPress data without having to login to WordPress. This will really make it a lot easier to use “WordPress as an application framework”. Ryan’s talk will cover the project goals and will make you excited about the future of WordPress!
September 26, 2015 — I would like to speak about WordPress JSON API and new possibility what developer can do with WordPress. With REST API now we can easily fetch content in JSON format, but we can also much easily communicate between frontend and backend. The idea is to motivate developer to use API for creating new cool things with WordPress.
August 1, 2015 — WordPress core contributor Taylor Lovett covers why the new JSON REST API (proposed for WordPress 4.1) is so awesome, as well as explains some cool things you can do with it and how you can start using it today.
July 19, 2015 — With the release of the WordPress JSON API expected later this year, WordPress is primed to serve as a viable backend for single-page web applications of the future. The presentation will explain the benefits of using WordPress in this context and include a short demonstration to show how WordPress can be integrated in a typical single-page application technology stack.
July 9, 2015 — I’m not the best developer. I’m not the best designer. But with WordPress, I, and you, can be anything. WordPress enabled me in less than 3 days to build a fully operational SaaS and solve a problem that pained many. With the introduction of the WordPress JSON API and plugin-specific APIs, there is no limit to what WordPress is capable of. You need only dream, and built it.
May 31, 2015 — Once upon a time we passed parameters to create web pages, now we use pretty URLs and (hopefully) think through our URLs carefully. URLs are one of the fundamental commands a user can give WordPress, and they can be poetic, powerful and precise all at once. This talk covers how URLs are turned into WP_Query parameters, what URL endpoints are and when to use them, how URLs can be attractive and amusing, and how to use URLs across different post type structures.
April 19, 2015 — This presentation goes over the new and interesting avenues presented for WP developers with the new JSON API integration. And talks about things like best practice API consumption, possible use cases, upselling plans for clients, and much more!
