I’m teaching a few workshops this month aimed at those looking to level up their WordPress development chops. It’s got me thinking a lot about what you need to do quality WordPress development.
Composer is an essential part of the workflow for modern WordPress development, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t present certain challenges.

This weekend I am super-honored to be presenting at WordCamp Atlanta 2015 on Composer, the PHP dependency manger. This presentation, “Using Composer To Increase Your WordPress Development Powers,” is adapted from an earlier post on this site of the same title.
Composer is an important tool that is not only easy to use, but also leads to increased code reusability, a reduction in copypasta errors, encourages best practices like using namespacing and autoloaders, and can aid in deployments.
