It is the time of year again where WordCamp London is taking place very soon and I am delighted to announce that I have been kindly selected to speak at the event. My talk is titled “Publishing a Plugin on WordPress.org“.
I started writing plugins a long time ago mainly for client work, however over the last couple of years I have been releasing some of the plugins I have built to the open source community via WordPress.org’s plugin repository. In this talk I will go present on the following:
- The reasons why you may want to release a plugin on WordPress.org rather than keeping it for yourself!
- The specific steps, setup and rules you need to follow in order to prepare your plugin for a WordPress.org release
- How to actually submit your plugin, including the process itself and some things to think about to make the plugin review teams’ lives easier
- A brief look at aftercare of the your plugin particularly around using the support forums etc.
If you have yet to purchase your ticket for WordCamp London, I would strongly urge you to do so. At just £30 they are an absolute bargain and I am sure you will get a lot out of the weekend.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
