Modular functionality – making WordPress development easier

A summarized insight into maintaining individual features in your own WordPress plugins through the flexibility and organisation of modular development.

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 summarized 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.
