Modular functionality – making WordPress development easier

I carry out work within the international WordPress community as part of an ongoing voluntary contribution, with up to 10% of my working week dedicated to open source and contributory work. This commitment is funded through my agency Say Hello.

I was a speaker at WordCamp Geneva on 18th November. Touching on front-end techniques most commonly known from programmers like Brad Frost, I explained how to plan a development project for both front end and backend environments, using recent real-world examples of developing for blogs and larger multisite installations.

My talk provided a summarised insight into maintaining individual features through the use of your own WordPress plugins, why it’s important to decide whether to add features to a theme or via a plugin, and the flexibility and organisation which modular coding brings.
