As an example, Saleeh will show how to integrate a Telegram bot/Google Assistant with your WooCommerce-powered eCommerce store, and get notifications on new orders and updates. Various features like list all your orders, listing products, displaying order Summary, using webhooks to receive instant notifications of new WooCommerce orders, and a lot more can be achieved using such integrations.

  • Benjamin Hanusse, Michael Bontyes: Let’s build a static React website with WordPress and Gatsby

    WordCamp Boston 2019Speakers: Benjamin Hanusse, Michael Bontyes

    November 3, 2020 — With the web ecosystem steadily moving towards JavaScript frameworks and JAMstack setups, let’s see how to get up to speed with those latest headless trends.

    During this hands-on workshop, we will build a React front-end pulling content from WordPress with GraphQL, and using Gatsby as a static website generator. Some knowledge of WordPress Rest API, Node or React is a plus but not a requirement. We will go through each step following a homemade GitHub tutorial with concrete examples, including the initial setup and a deployment on a serverless hosting and continuous integration (CI) platform. As an extra, we will also explain how to easily make your Gutenberg layout work with your React website.

    Bring your own bottle laptop (BYOL) and join us if you are curious about headless architecture.

  • 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.
