This month we'll be exploring the WordPress API. If want to learn more about APIs, specifically the WordPress REST API, then come along and learn from one of the core developers. Also, if you have any questions relating to the talk or the API in general then we've got some API and JavaScript experts at hand :-)

17:45: Introduction, informal chat, with free beers and soft drinks thanks to Campus North (

Also, pizza provided by Human Made ( 🍕

18:20: The Ultimate REST API talk - Joe Hoyle (

Come on a journey through all things WordPress REST API, we don't have much time so strap yourselves in!

From the basics of REST to advanced custom endpoints, auth, JavaScript usage and WordPress to WordPress communication. Joe attempts to provide a quick-fire look at many areas of the REST API and application development.

Expect many code examples, case studies, visualisations and metaphors; if you do get lost, be consoled by the fact that Joe is almost certainly lost too!

19:00: REST API Q&A

If you have any further questions about the WP REST API, APIs in general or any other related subjects then we have some experts on hand to field your questions.

19:30: If you've still not had your fill of WordPress and the API then come and join us in the pub!
