BOILERPLATING WORDPRESS by DAVE GREEN

The process of developing a bespoke WordPress website from scratch is a lengthily one. When you’re repeating it on a regular basis for your clients, it soon becomes necessary to “boilerplate” certain aspects of this process to save time, reduce repetition and increase profitability!

In this talk I’ll share my experience of building Kapow!, the bespoke WordPress development boilerplate that I’ve been working on at Make Do for the past few years.

I’ll cover some of the important things you need to bear in mind when creating your own development boilerplate, highlight some of the decisions and challenges you’ll face as well as share some of the lessons that I’ve learned along the way.
