In this talk we’ll take a peek under the hood at some of the underlying architecture behind the most popular content management system on the planet. We’ll review the database schema and internal APIs, and discuss the pros, cons and caveats to historical decisions that are now “baked in” to WordPress, for better or worse.
We’ll dive a bit deeper than my Developer’s Guide to WordPress blog post.
Finally, we’ll take a look at Gutenberg and the changes it represents.
This will be a presentation at Vermont Code Camp ’18, an all-day free event with several fantastic speakers and presentations. The specific time of this talk is TBA.
