This week: tickets for WordCamp Europe, the future of WordPress, metaboxes, GraphQL and much more.
Katie Keith from Barn2 poses the question “is WordPress dying”. Of course, such a statement is an exaggeration – the market simply normalizes after the pandemic. On the other hand – WP has its problems and it’s time to finally start fixing them.
Brian Coords stands up for metaboxes. And I fully agree with him – Gutenberg is cool, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for everything. If we only care about entering data – metaboxes are a great solution.
Richard Macko describes why it is so important to start a project with the so-called discovery phase. Thanks to it, we can better understand our client and create a better-suited product for him.
Leonardo Losoviz released version 0.9 of his GraphQL API plugin. It took him 1.5 years, but the list of changes is really substantial.
Robert Windisch explains why code quality is so important. In addition, he explains the consequences of oversaving.
Felipe Elia shows how to remove obsolete code using WordPress functions. Of course, apart from the functions itself, Felipe also points out how important it is to communicate about changes.
Damon Cook explains how to manage WordPress plugins using Composer. The only thing that is a bit surprising is the fact that he didn’t mention Bedrock.
Each of us has once received an inquiry in which the client asked us to do something for yesterday. In this article, Brad Williams explains how long it takes an agency to create a website and how much in advance you need to contact them.
Eric Karkovack tries to predict what will be the next hot thing in the world of WordPress.
Ross Halliday from HumanMade explains what it is and what are the benefits of using the Agile methodology.
Beatriz Fialho showed how the new version of the theme page on wordpress.org will look like.
