RVA WordPress Wednesday Meetups

4th Wednesday of Every Month!

This group is for anyone who uses WordPress, whether you're a blogger, designer, developer, coder, themer, or anything else you can imagine. Meetup events are open to both advanced and beginner users and are free!

This month, we have Matthew Rosenberg from the Richmond Times-Dispatch talking on Codex Decoded: JSON API.

This is a very advanced class. This class will examine the awesome JSON API (http://wordpress.org/plugins/json-api/) plugin that can be used to power webapps, widgets and more. .

WordPress has many APIs (http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_APIs), some that can be used to get or even write posts and comments like the XML-RPC (http://codex.wordpress.org/XML-RPC_WordPress_API) protocol. Out of the box it lacks the increasingly common JSON format which is an easy to use lightweight way of handling data. This month we will look at this plugin and how it can be used.

This is an advanced class that will be dealing with php, javascript and jQuery. A basic understanding of those languages will be helpful in understanding the power of this plugin.

On behalf of RVA WordPress, we look forward to seeing you on the 24th!
