Keynote speech “WordPress as an application platform” by Joey Kudish
This developer-oriented presentation will focus on explaining what an API is in the context of WordPress and why you should care about them. We’ll explore the different APIs available within the WordPress ecosystem, including the WordPress.com & Jetpack REST API as well as the proposed WordPress Core REST API. We’ll also touch upon some of the surrounding developer ecosystem. Time allowing, the presentation will include a Q&A where attendees can ask questions about APIs, general WordPress development and Automattic.
“W███████S” by Noel Tock
WordPress has long evolved from just being a blogging platform. It’s capable of being an integral part of any of your web ideas and concepts, regardless how abstract. In this talk, Noel will present his ideas on how we should stop blocking ourselves with design stereotypes and be limitless in our use of WordPress.
The talk will also discuss Happytables and the API obviously.
We will update more sessions very soon!
