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.
The WordPress REST API is more then the default routes, its a highly extensible tool for creating APIs. Learn how to extend it and make it fit your own needs.
Some tools take training to use, and others you can learn like magic. Still others teach you how to use other, more powerful tools. I think we might have made one of those.
WordPress 3.7 added several cool new features, including the new date queries added to WP_Query. Date queries allow you to easily do some pretty cool things based on a post’s date. In this tutorial I will show you how to use them to show posts published one year ago, the most commented on posts in the last week and posts scheduled for tomorrow.
