WordPress Plugin Workshop (Jan 5th, Save $5 Until 11/30)


The WordPress Plugin Workshop is a near full-day workshop focused on instructing people to (1) learn how WordPress plugin work and (2) build a basic WordPress plugin from scratch.

Who This Workshop Is For: Freelancers, coders, and anyone who wants to be able to build and edit WordPress plugins for themselves, plugins they can fork/modify, and plugins that they build for clients. The workshop is going to cover a bit about how WordPress is built and the basics of how plugins – from the big to the small – work within WordPress. You don’t need to know PHP or CSS or JavaScript deeply but you SHOULD know a bit about them – we will be primarily coding in PHP but explaining what PHP functions WordPress uses. We aren’t teaching basic PHP or basic JavaScript – but you can learn the basics quick on these before the workshop.

Who This Workshop IS NOT For: If you have never coded before, have no idea what PHP or HTML is, or have never used WordPress before… this workshop isn’t for you right now. Come to a meetup instead.

Times: Workshop starts at 9am and ends around 2:30pm with a lunch break.

Date: January 5th, 2019

Location: University of Miami (Main Coral Gables Campus). Exact room/building in addition to parking information will be announced to registered attendees before the event.

Cost: Cost for this workshop is $50, but for a limited time until November 29th you can save $5 (use that money to get a coffee on the way to the event). This is a REAL focused workshop with code samples (and if enough paid people signup, we can even record it).
