Learn about Wordpress

  • November 5, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Modis (CIT Building)

Now that we've beaten PHP frameworks to death, time to move on to CMS (Content Management Systems).  Jonathon has offered to bring us up to date on web development with Wordpress:

Come peek under the hood of WordPress, the CMS behind nearly a fifth of the world's top websites. We'll dive through the core of WordPress, learning how a user's request for a URL translates into the HTML we see. Along the way, we'll explore methods for extending and altering WordPress using the theme and plugin APIs.

    Thanks, everyone who came out. If anyone's interested in the code for the demo WordPress plugin I shared, it's at https://github.com/jbrinley/jaxp...­. The slides (for what little they're worth) are at https://docs.google.com/presenta...­

    Looking forward to seeing you all again next month.

    Just so everyone knows - we officially have the ethernet ports working in the conference room so I will have a few cords but if you have an ethernet cord, bring it with you to plug in!
