I recently spoke at WordCamp Minneapolis on Creating Usable, Maintainable, and Upgradable WordPress Sites (Cimbura.com was proud to be a sponsor). This was a polished up version of the same talk I gave at WordUp last October.

It seemed to be a common theme at WordCamp this year: following WordPress best practices is what smart developers do, and what smart clients ask for from their developers. With WordPress major updates every few months and hacking attacks on the rise it’s even more important to invest in quality code.

Other talks along the same lines:

  • Building Your First Functionality Plugin
  • Super Fast WordPress Themes
  • Where Does My Code Go? Plugin or Theme?
  • Staying Sane: Writing Compatible Code

My slides are available at SpeakerDeck. I’ll post a link to the video once it’d been uploaded to WordPress.tv.

In the meantime, you can watch my talk from WordCamp 2014 on Plugin Monetization Options.
