WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/12/02

I am a WordPress user and I am sure there are a lot of folks like myself who are confused to a certain extent about what exactly the REST API is and does. I hope that these two videos will help users and beginners have a better understanding of what the  REST API is capable of.

Siobhan McKeown: The WordPress REST API – A Guide for the Perplexed

Siobhan McKeown gave this presentation at WordCamp Milano 2016. The talk is geared towards non-developers where she explains the concept behind the WordPress REST API.

Everyone’s taking about the WordPress REST API. Everyone says that it’s going to transform WordPress. But what actually is it?

WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/09/26

This week we have two videos from two WordCamps. One for beginners and one for developers.

First up is Jerett Farmer and his presentation at WordCamp Los Angeles 2016 titled WordPress By A Dummy.

Jerett has some help from a special friend and the audience as he helps new users prepare for their first website.

“This presentation would be great for brand new or newish users who wants a brief over view of getting a secure and easy to administer site up with as little trouble as possible.”


Next, from WordCamp Pittsburgh 2016 is Josh Pollock with The WordPress API and the Evolution of WordPress.

Josh talks about the possibilities of using the REST API to deliver better experiences and break expectations to users.

“In this talk, I will cover many of the possibilities for using WordPress in new and exciting ways as well as to improve how we build the most common elements of a WordPress site.”
