    Shafiq Lutaaya: Towards the WordPress Restful API

    WordCamp Kampala 2019Speaker: Shafiq Lutaaya

    March 2, 2020 — The web has grown quite a bit over the last decade, and WordPress has fallen behind ever so slightly. More applications are being brought to the web with JavaScript and more dynamic websites are being built with languages like Python and Ruby.

    WordPress core and even a few professional WordPress developers feel that WordPress’ heavy reliance on PHP and minimal use of
    JavaScript has become far too outdated. This is something the WordPress REST API is meant to solve.

    This doesn’t mean WordPress is moving away from PHP, but it does mean developers should consider learning JavaScript if they want to take advantage of what this API has to offer.

    Felix Arntz: Types, Subtypes, Meta, Options: An Abstract View on Data Structures in WordPress

    WordCamp Portland 2018Speaker: Felix Arntz

    January 14, 2020 — When we work with WordPress, we deal with data that we commonly know as posts, pages, media, comments, options etc. However, the REST API has required us to rethink what some of these data structures are and how they should work, particularly in regards to metadata and options, which have historically been an undefined dump of arbitrary data. This session provides an abstract overview of how data in WordPress is structured and gives insight on questions like: How are post types and taxonomies related? What makes metadata different from options? Where does my own data fit in? If you are developing for WordPress, it is crucial to know some of these concepts. In recent years, WordPress has started to make some structure out of its previous data mess, but is still only touching the surface. And we can all contribute to figuring it out together.

While this will not be a _deep_ dive into code, we will review specific code samples and you should get enough detail to build this – or something like it – yourself by the time the session has ended.
