2022: Year of the WordPress Developer

As a WordPress developer, you’re keenly aware of what publishers need, and that expertise puts you in a unique position to better serve those requirements as they accelerate. 

In the first keynote session kicking off DE{CODE} 2022, WP Engine Founder & CTO Jason Cohen walks through some of the most important publisher and site requirements (including page speed and user experience), innovative ways WordPress developers are meeting them today, as well as new tools and component-based approaches developers are already using to build the adaptive digital experiences of tomorrow.

3rd party scripts can provide excellent adaptive functionality, but may also slow down your site. New tools like Partytown make that trade-off a thing of the past.

From sites that adjust to specific conditions and preferences even if a user isn’t logged in, to image optimizations, new ways of configuring user settings, CSS container queries, and the shift to thinking about web pages as components rather than an entire page, this session provides real-world, actionable information you can put to use on your WordPress sites right now and expand your impact on the sites you build and manage.  

“As a WordPress developer, you already understand so much of the world, you understand how to work with publishers, how to convert their requirements into real life, how to mix code and art and make websites that are wonderful and effective.

The trick is to learn and bring in this new technology so rather than being left behind, you’re leveraging things like components, adaptive experiences, and the tools beind them.” 

WP Engine Founder & CTO Jason Cohen

Be the Change: The Future of WordPress with WP Engine’s DevRel Team

WordPress 5.9 ushered in a new way of building sites with WordPress. Full Site Editing, which expands block-based functionality across an entire WordPress site, will empower builders in a way we’ve never seen before. 

To help developers make a successful transition to this new way of building with WordPress, WP Engine’s Developer Relations (DevRel) team was formed to serve as a conduit between the WordPress project, its users, and those who build with it. 

In this third and final keynote session from DE{CODE} 2022, WP Engine Principal Developer Advocate Brian Gardner, who heads the DevRel team, offers an in-depth look at the history of WordPress, recent updates including version 5.9 and the launches (and new features) leading up to it, as well as a preview of WordPress 6.0, which is set to launch at the end of May.

WordPress has significantly evolved since its launch in 2003—and WordPress 5.9 heralds the next chapter in that evolution.

If you touch WordPress in any way, this highly informative session will bring you up to speed on some of the most important innovations currently under development in WordPress core, as well as the wide list of resources WP Engine’s DevRel team is building to help you leverage Gutenberg blocks and Full Site Editing.  

“We want to cultivate an interactive and immersive WordPress community that values innovation and curiosity—where generosity is encouraged, ideas are celebrated, and new pathways are formed.”
