From URL to Query–WordPressDC Meetup

Tonight I’ve been invited to present my talk, From URL to Query, to the WordPressDC meetup group. I recently gave an introductory version of this talk at WordCamp San Francisco, and tonight’s version is a more-detailed expansion akin to the version I’ve presented at past WordCamps. I’ve described the talk as follows:

Ever wonder what process WordPress undertakes when someone visits your site? Or how it translates that nice permalink to the database query that ultimately delivers the content your visitors requested? Or what it takes to load the appropriate template from your site’s theme?

In this talk, I’ll walk through WordPress’ loading process and shed some light on the various APIs used. I’ll also discuss how these APIs work together to make the software function.

Slides are be available at https://slides.ethitter.com/from-url-to-query-wpdc/. If the session’s recorded, I’ll embed the video once it’s available.

From URL To Query–WordCamp San Francisco 2014

WordCamp San Francisco is today, and I’ve been invited to present a five-minute lightning talk as part of this afternoon’s program. Drawing from my longer talk of the same name (given at past WordCamps), From URL to Query describes the process WordPress undertakes to deliver the right content for each URL.

Ever wonder what process WordPress undertakes when someone visits your site? Or how it translates that nice permalink to the database query that ultimately delivers the content your visitors requested? Or what it takes to load the appropriate template from your site’s theme?

In this talk, I’ll walk through WordPress’ loading process and shed some light on the various APIs used. I’ll also discuss how these APIs work together to make the software function.

From URL to Query–WordCamp Miami 2013

Today at WordCamp Miami, I reprised my latest talk, From URL to Query. I’ve now given this talk at WordCamps Phoenix, Atlanta, and Miami; the latter two presentations are an expanded version of the original talk delivered in Phoenix.

Briefly, this was the intent of my talk:

Ever wonder what process WordPress undertakes when someone visits your site? Or how it translates that nice permalink to the database query that ultimately delivers the content your visitors requested? Or what it takes to load the appropriate template from your site’s theme?

Slides are available at http://slides.ethitter.com/from-url-to-query/.

I’ll link to the video once it becomes available. The recording of the WordCamp Phoenix iteration is available in the meantime, but isn’t as in-depth as what I covered in Atlanta or Miami.
