WordPress Intro to Plugin, Theme and Web App Development with Zane Matthew

Learn the basics of building WordPress pluginsthemes and even single niche web apps which enhance this great web development platform.  There will always be a need for new, well designed themes and plugins to support different business and us case scenarios, if you can't find it, sometimes you will have to build it.

If you are thinking about Ruby on Rails to build a simple web app, why not use what you know, PHP, HTML5, Javascript, AJAX, and other web technologies along with WordPress as your web app framework and spend more time on design and user experience, than on coding.  This will yield a highly functional, great looking, fully up-gradable, responsive web app that is developed in a fraction of the time.

Zane Mathew has accomplished just that with one of many projects that he has developed.  Join Zane for a full demo and inside explanation on how and why he used WordPress to build a web app.  Find out how you can accomplish the same goal.

Check out his amazingly fast  web app based on WordPress that he developed to support his second or maybe first passion, BMX Racing. Check out the screenshots


We will be offering an extended workshop soon, so that you can get your hands dirty.
