Getting Started with WordPress Development

Getting Started with WordPress Development

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.

This presentation is aimed at experienced PHP developers who have minimal experience with WordPress development. It was presented at the Cape Town PHP Meetup on 23 April 2015: http://www.meetup.com/Cape-Town-PHP-Group/events/221748419/
