Chances are you’re confused as to which of these new technologies are relevant to WordPress and how best to apply them in your workflow. Sure there are plenty of tutorials out there, but most don’t explain why you should be using these tools and don’t point you in the right direction when they’re done.
I started in the same position, and it took me a long time to figure out what really worked and what didn’t. My goal is to shorten that process exponentially. With this book I’ll take you through everything you’ll need to know about new development technologies and practices and which are the best for you to use.
Don’t know where to start?
Newcomers are often tossed in the deep end, or aren’t guided properly in modern coding techniques and tools. If you’re just starting out with WordPress or you’re a WordPress Veteran and don’t know where to begin, it’s easy to get lost and confused when you don’t have somebody to guide you.
Gee if only there were a nifty book out there that would help point you in the right direction…
Why should I update my workflow?
Does any of this sound familiar?
- The closest thing you have to an IDE is the WordPress theme editor and NotePad++
- Version Control means different ZIP files scattered across servers and computers
- You have no idea what “Vagrant” is and at this point you’re too afraid to ask
- Moving databases requires about 3 hours of work and you’ve accidentally deleted all your data twice
- Making changes means connecting to the server through FTP and editing the files live
- Your CSS files are close to 2000 lines long and are entirely unmaintainable
The good news is that we have fixed all of these problems. You just need somebody to show you where these tools and techniques are and how to use them!
