WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/12/09

As a WordPress user (maybe you can read that as an intermediate beginner), a lot of the content on WordPress TV is very interesting to me: SEO, REST API, blogging, themes, plugins, etc. Now, implementing what I watch in the videos is another issue best not discussed here.

These two videos come from WordCamp Milano 2016 which was held on October 22nd.

Torsten Landsiedel: The Child-Theme-Dilemma

In his presentation, Torsten talks about the reasons users should use child themes to make customizations to their sites.

A talk for people who don’t want to be beginner any longer and need to be intermediates. 

Slides for his presentation can be seen HERE.

Bernhard Kau: Child Plugins

Wait…..whaaaat? Child Plugins? That is correct! Bernard discusses the concept of a “child” plugin to make modifications without making changes to the original code.

In this session I would like to present some of there techniques and talk about the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.

Slides for his presentation can be found HERE.
