Bending WordPress to Your Will (October 2018)

Bending WordPress to Your Will (October 2018)

These slides are slightly modified from a previous talk I gave with the same title.

WordPress is an incredibly powerful platform and framework for development, but until you learn how to use it you won't be able to make full use of its flexibility. In this session you will learn the core principles of WordPress development that will enable you to start taking full advantage of everything that it offers.

I gave this presentation at the Cape Town Develop UG on 29 October 2018: https://www.meetup.com/DeveloperUG/events/bcqgbqyxnbdc/
