A couple weeks ago I attended LoopConf 2018, a conference specifically for WordPress developers. Funnily enough, a lot of the talks weren’t just for WordPress developers but for web developers in general.
You can see the full listing of talks from this year but here are some highlights I thought you’d get a lot out of:
Using Chrome Dev Tools
I’ve been using Chrome dev tools for years, but picked up a ton of trips from Shawn in this talk. If you do any kind of front-end work this is definitely worth a watch.
Zen Mode: Developing Offline
Creating better APIs
This was a bit of an unexpected talk and wish I’d seen it years sooner. Dennis shows some quick ways to reduce the number of API calls your application has to make, and techniques such as including a status parameter to significantly clean up your front-end and back-end code.
