From the Author


This book is for professional Web developers who want to make WordPress work exactly how they and their clients want. WordPress has already proven an exceptional platform for building any type of site from simple static pages to networks of full - featured communities. Learning how to code plugins will help you get the most out of WordPress and have a cost - effective approach to developing per - client features.

This book is also for the code freelancers who want to broaden their skill portfolio, understand the inner - workings of WordPress functionality, and take on WordPress gigs. Since WordPress is the most popular software to code and power websites, it is crucial that you understand how things run under the hood and how you can make the engine work your way. Learning how to code plugins will be a priceless asset to add to your resume and business card.

Finally, this book is for hobbyist PHP programmers who want to tinker with how their WordPress blog works, discover the infi nite potential of lean and fl exible source code, and how they can interact with the fl ow of events. The beauty of open source is that it ' s easy to learn from and easy to give back in turn. This book will help you take your fi rst step into a community that will welcome your creativity and contribution.
