  • Dwayne McDaniel: Shipping Content With WP-CLI and Automated Testing And Why That Is Awesome

    WordCamp Seattle 2018Speaker: Dwayne McDaniel

    December 19, 2019 — We live in a world of continuous integration, continuous delivery, version controlled code and configuration. Yet when it comes to delivering content we are relying on doing all publishing straight to the production environment and hoping it works, editing the live document to fix issues we only find once they are in production. I propose there is a better way.

    Let’s build our content on our development instances the same way we develop code and configuration. Then using the power of Github, WP-CLI and Automated Testing tools like Behat, let’s professionally deploy our content to production will full confidence it works as intended. Let’s give editors better tools to build better content in a word of Gutenberg while saving anyone the need to overwrite the production database ever again.

    Topics include:

    WP-CLI for generating content
    Connecting Github and your WordPress site
    Leveraging multiple environments
    Behaviorally testing content

  • Behzod Saidov: Introduction to WP-CLI: Manage WordPress from the command line

    WordCamp Riverside 2017Speaker: Behzod Saidov

    September 16, 2019 — “The topic is about powerful tool WP-CLI than can help WordPress developers or power users a lot.

    If you manage multiple WordPress websites or multiple environments of a WordPress website, you probably have experienced situations where you need to go through exact same steps on multiple websites. Clicking through wp-admin screens to change settings becomes time consuming. WP-CLI can be used to automate those tasks with ease.

    During my presentation I’ll introduce the audience with the command line and WP-CLI, then I’ll go through some of the tasks that can be easily done using this tool. I’ll demonstrate some tasks running them on a sample WordPress website running in local development environment. Demonstrations will include tasks like pulling back the database to lower environments (qa/staging) and rewriting it, managing users, plugins, etc.”
