    Introduction to WordPress Plugin Development

    Our newest Tuts+ Live Workshop, Introduction to WordPress Plugin Development, teaches you everything that you need to know to start developing WordPress plugins; from setting up a local development environment, all the way through to building a WordPress plugin that's ready for release into the WordPress Plugin Repository.

    It's led by Instructor Tom McFarlin, a self-employed WordPress developer who divides his time between running his own WordPress development shop, building plugins for WordPress, blogging every day about software development in the context of WordPress, and working for 8BIT (the team responsible for Standard Theme and WP Daily).

    Each weekly workshop will last one hour, running over a five week period. You'll have the opportunity to follow along with Tom, ask questions live during the workshop, and complete a weekly homework assignment. Not able to make it to the live recording? No problem! All of the workshop recordings will be made available online the day after the live workshop.
