This morning, I delivered an extended version of this talk, which I first presented at WordCamp Winnipeg 2015. This session explored WordPress functionality that new developers often overlook, as well as some “gotchas” about Core behavior. As a 90-minute workshop, extensive discussion was encouraged, and successful–so much so that I only made it about halfway through the slides. But, as I said at the outset, the slides were more a suggestion to guide the discussion.
As I promised during the session, the complete slides are embedded below.
The slides are also available at https://slides.e15r.co/wcoc-dev-what-i-wish-id-known/.
The session wasn’t recorded, but several talks of mine on WordPress.tv cover similar material: http://wordpress.tv/speakers/erick-hitter/. Slides from past talks are at http://ethitter.com/category/talks/.
