Weekly Recap: WYSIWYG Theming, Plugin Development, jQuery, and Child Themes

We had another light publishing week here on WordPress.tv last week, but we have the first of a bunch of WordCamp video for you tonight in a special weekend delivery to make up for lost time.

The one video we did get out for you was the first video to come out of the excellent WordCamp New York City, and it features an awesome concept that came out of the Google Summer of Code. It’s Daryl Koopersmith’s talk on the Elastic WYSIWYG theme tool; you should check it out.

Tonight, we have three more videos, also from WordCamp NYC. First, Matt Martz gives an instructional course on intermediate plugin development. Jim Doran talks to us about using jQuery when you develop for WordPress. And lastly, Allan Cole discusses the increasingly important role child themes take in WordPress development.

We have more WordCamp video on the way this week. To stay updated, follow @wordpresstv on Twitter.

Last week, I asked for suggestions for future video tutorials, and we received a handful of suggestions that I think are very good. I think you’ll see some information on those topics in the future. This week, I have a different request of the community.

We need volunteer transcribers and translators.

To get started, we have video coming in soon from WordCamp Kyoto. Almost all of it is (of course) in Japanese—and much of the WordPress community would still love to see those presentations but may not understand the Japanese language. If you are Japanese-speaking and could help us by volunteering to transcribe or translate the video from WordCamp Kyoto, please either leave a comment on this post or drop us a line using this contact form.

Thanks, and if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving this week, have a great holiday week. Don’t forget the contest currently going on at WordPress.com—a video contest! There’s some snazzy prizes being given away over there.
