WordCamp Israel 2016 Is Demanding Your Attention Now

February 4, 2016 - 2 minutes read

So… it’s that time of year. And this year, as part of the WordCamp Israel team, I’d like to announce the plans for this year’s event.

If you know me, then you might also know that I’m quite into advanced development. (who knew, eh?) I’ve been working with different libraries and frameworks, both JavaScript and PHP/WordPress over the past year and I’d love to share some of that in the upcoming WordCamp.

So that’s a plus for some of you who are interested in advanced topics.

But forget what I just said. The plan this year, as far as the Developer track is concerned, is to sift away from the “intermediate” approach and present some more advanced topics, but in a convincing, accessible way.

We want more local talent. That should be a great way to tackle this challenge.

These are some suggestions I have for this year’s WordCamp that I think if offered, will probably get high chances of getting selected.

  • WP’s new REST API
  • Workflow Improvement (using advanced deployment tools like Capistrano, Jenkins, CircleCI, etc.)
  • Advanced Security in WordPress
  • Development Automation tools (Grunt, Gulp, Make)
  • Advanced JavaScript for WordPress environments
    • Libraries such as Backbone, React
    • Tools such as CoffeeScript, TypeScript
  • Smart Development Processes for Themes and Plugins
  • Advanced Caching in WordPress

You’re welcome to pitch your idea in the form in the bottom of this page.

Talking of advanced topics, here is a curated list of advanced tools and articles for WordPress. Thank me later.

Hope to see you there!
