WordPress, APIs and You

Joey KudishThis developer-oriented presentation will focus on explaining what an API is in the context of WordPress and why you should care about them. We’ll dive into the WordPress.com & Jetpack REST API, its surrounding developer ecosystem. Finally we’ll touch upon the new proposed WordPress Core REST API and how it might fit into the picture. The presentation will include a Q&A where attendees can ask questions about APIs, general WordPress development and Automattic.

Prerequisites: Users should have a basic understanding of Javascript, PHP, HTTP Requests and JSON. You don’t have to be a professional developer to follow the presentation.
