About this Workshop
Are you an aspiring WordPress developer? Learn how to build your own WordPress plugins in our newest Tuts+ Live Workshop!
Say you're a budding WordPress developer, you've dabbled with theme customization, tweaked a few plugins, and maybe even added custom functions to your installation to get it to behave exactly as you want.
But that's not enough. You're ready to take the next step by building your own custom plugins for WordPress.
Tom McFarlin is a self-employed WordPress developer who divides his time between running his own WordPress development shop, building plugins for WordPress, blogging every day about software development in the context of WordPress, and working for 8BIT (the team responsible for Standard Theme and WP Daily).
In this Tuts+ Live Workshop, you're going to learn everything that you need to know to start developing WordPress plugins; from setting up a local development environment, all the way through to building a WordPress plugin that's ready for release into the WordPress Plugin Repository.
Each weekly workshop will last one hour, running over a five week period. You'll have the opportunity to follow along with Tom, ask questions live during the workshop, and complete a weekly homework assignment. Additionally, we'll have downloadable resources from each workshop available for you to review.
Not able to make it to the live recording? No problem! All of the workshop recordings will be made available online the day after the live workshop.
