Happy Monday! Our first session is under a week away, and I’m not sure I could be any more excited! To help you prepare, and get excited too, here’s a bit more about what you can expect.
For this session, each presenter will be bringing a greater level of understanding to the plugin development process, ranging from beginner/introductory topics all the way up to advanced development techniques. Whether you’re just getting into WordPress development, of you’ve been developing years, you stand to learn something from this dynamic speaker lineup.

- and more…
An a bit about your presenters:
These guys are the real deal, with decades of development experience between the three of them. I’m personally excited to learn something new from each of them.

Space is Limited
In order to help things run as smooth as possible, I’ve limited the live session to just 60 attendees. I’ve done this so that everyone attending has ample opportunity to ask their questions and be heard, and to limit the potential number of technical difficulties we could face. If you’re not among the first 60, don’t fret: your ticket will grant you access to the entire session recording immediately after the live portion is over.
