Developer User Group: Bending WordPress to Your Will


I gave a talk at the Cape Town Branch of the Developer User Group this week  that covered the basics of getting started with WordPress development. I have given this talk before as a longer and more complete workshop, so with this being a 40 minute theoretical talk, I included some more practical examples of the code I was talking about.

You can find the full slides from the talk here:

As you can see from the slides, I focussed on the action/filter paradigm of WordPress core as the main way of getting into developing for WordPress. From experience I can say that understanding this methodology opens up a huge world of WordPress development and allows you to do almost anything you like with the platform. 

Here are a few links that I mentioned in the talk, along with some other useful ones:
