    Matt Perry: REST API: Get Up To Speed In a Half-Hour

    WordCamp Seattle 2017Speaker: Matt Perry

    March 8, 2018 — Many of us work primarily in this first realm: with themes and plugins, and may not have been closely tracking all of the details of the REST API’s rollout. Other of us (me included) have found the years-long rollout to be complicated to track and summarize.

    Whatever your motivation, if you seek a gently-technical intro to the REST API in about a half-hour, this session is for you. We will cover three broad areas:

    – what is the REST API, and how does it work?
    – what are some possible use cases for the REST API?
    – how do I extend/customize/control the REST API?

    This broad, quick, overview should leave you prepared and equipped to further research and experimentation with WordPress’ fancy new feature.
