A Day of Rest
Having been developing WordPress themes and plugins for a number of years, I am keen to keep up to date with what is happening in the WordPress ecosystem. A big part of this has been attending WordCamps throughout the UK.
A Trip to London
So with that said on the 28th of January 2016, I took myself off down to London to A Day of Rest, a one-day conference about the WordPress Rest API. Billed as “Learn about the WordPress Rest API from the team building it and the people using it.”
I was lucky enough to see Jack’s talk at WordCamp London in March 2015 when he talked about how he built Picard Present theme and his talk at A Day of Rest gave great insight into the things he had learned during the months since and how he attempted to solve the problems he uncovered.
The ability to create slick, slimmed down user experiences for clients when they are managing their WordPress sites can only be a good thing, and I am looking forward to seeing what other Calypso like applications appear in the near future.
I may even build one myself.
