On 13th November, 2013 I attended my first PHP Hants session. I gave a talk entitled
Probably doing it wrong
Subtitled, “One man’s experiences with PHP and WordPress” the theme of the talk was meant to be:
developing dynamic documentation for WordPress plugins, APIs and hooks.
In it, I attempted to explain how I’d gone about documenting the oik suite of WordPress plugins, focussing on the effort to produce dynamic documentation for over 2500 APIs.
The presentation itself was a bit of a nightmare, both for the audience and myself. I was expecting to be able to give the presentation whilst driving the website. Standing with a microphone, with my back to the “slides”, and having someone else drive the screen was as uncomfortable for me as it was for the audience.
During the preparation of the talk I enhanced a number of my plugins and also developed and created the API and hook documentation for TWO brand new plugins.
- foobar – the world’s least amazing plugin – was mentioned; it was used to create the examples.
- smart-bbboing – localize your website in the bbboing language – never surfaced.
The presentation, with a few speaker notes, most of which I failed to use, is available at: PHPHants – Nov 2013 – developing dynamic documentation for WordPress plugins, APIs and hooks
