It’s been a good number of years since I last attended a WordCamp New York. But it holds a warm place in my heart. My first WordCamp was WordCamp New York 2008 🙂
This year, my good friend, David Parsons, took up the lead organizer role and put on a great WordCamp New York.
From the venue to the speakers, it all went very smooth and had a nice local camp feel.
My workshop was an adaptation of a similar workshop I have been doing at a number of other camps this year.
However, I learned one important thing this time.
This supports something I have been saying for a while:
Changes I’m Making for Next Time
There are a few modifications I am going to make for next time though:
- With the decoupled Vanilla JS and WP REST API practice project we will just use fetch instead of introducing Axios or jQuery.
- Inside of WordPress, when we import our decoupled example into a WordPress theme I am just going to show how to use jQuery AJAX.
- Rather than try to teach the Backbone client I am just going to mention it at the end. After teaching it for a while, I think it is best to know some Backbone before trying to use this.
