Guest on WPwatercooler – Beyond Learning JavaScript Deeply

Thanks to George Sephanis for inviting me on the WPwatercooler show this week to discuss what else is worth learning deeply in 2016 besides JavaScript.

Of course, several of the folks on the show, including myself, are still focused on learning JavaScript in 2016,

However, a number of other good areas came up as well:

  1. Ways of Building with a API
  2. Learn Git, WP CLI, Workflow Tools
  3. Still Learn HTML, CSS and SASS
  4. Regular Expressions?!
  5. How to Customize Visual Composer
  6. Use Sketch to Build Mobile First, Responsive Sites
  7. Other ECMA languages like ActionScript?
  8. Learn Hosting More Deeply (ie how and why Pantheon approaches hosting the way they do, NGINX, Linux)
  9. Learn Local Development with DesktopServer, if you haven’t yet
  10. Bring Adaptive Content Delivery to WordPress

Thanks again for inviting me on the show, good times!

WordPress Database Search and Replace with WP CLI

While working locally on a new site I realized that all of the image URLs were busted.  Super happy to test out using the WP CLI search-replace feature for the first time to find out it works great!

wp search-replace oldurl.com newurl.com

Back in the old days I would use plugins like the Search and Replace plugin for this sort of thing just to avoid having to login to phpMyAdmin.  Oh the days of GUIs 😉

Really enjoying working with WP CLI.  If you haven’t tried it out yet, check out our Treehouse course on Modern WordPress Workflow.
