PHP Basics for WordPress

Have you been wanting to create your own theme or add some customizations to your WordPress site?  Have you started looking at the code only to be confused by some of the PHP that WordPress uses?

Dustin Filippini, WordPress Developer, (@dustyf) will walk us through some PHP basics for WordPress.  We will be looking at the very basics of the PHP language and relate it to working with WordPress.

You will learn:

• Variables

• Arrays

• Functions

• Operators

• Data Types

• If, Else, While, Echo, 

• How to see your data with var_dump

• PHP Syntax

• How WordPress uses these and how you can use them!

• And More...


We are also happy to announce that C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions will be hosting and sponsoring this month's meetup.  C2 provides training and staffing services including classes and positions with WordPress.  Thanks to Eric and C2 we have a place to meet this month and will also have some pizza and beverages to enjoy.

    It was a good basic overview of PHP. Maybe an upcoming course could actually take a page or two from WordPress and go down the code line by line, explaining what the PHP is saying/doing?

    I like Jennifer's idea to continue on the WP PHP topic and let's overview some of the more commonly used Codex and sample modifying a few of the customizable PHP files. Cheers to Dustin and Scott for the topic and many thanks to C2 for sponsoring the location, food and drinks. Ever grateful to Erica and bro! Cheers :D
