I’m preparing a talk for our local WordPress MeetUp on January 6, 2016. You’ll learn why WordPress is getting a REST API, why it’s in JSON format, and what do all these acronyms mean.
WordPress JSON REST API Post-Holiday Extravaganza
You may have heard that WordPress has begun the process integrating a JSON REST API in version 4.4. In this presentation we’ll cover these topics:
- Why it’s important for WordPress to have an API.
- What is CRUD, REST, JSON, and how to interface with a REST API.
- How to configure and interface with the JSON REST API in WordPress
WordPress started as an open-source blogging tool. The introduction of custom post types meant WordPress could be used as a full-fledged content management system. The JSON REST API is a new opportunity for WordPress to become a web application platform. Come learn about the future of WordPress web development.
See you there. WordPress Dev Seacoast Meetup, January 6, 2014.
