Building your first plugin

Often times people have wrung out all of WordPress’s options and settings and want it to do something a little more. It may be minor, but in some cases it requires the dreaded: code!

We’ll cover the bare minimum required to create a plugin, how to install it, and what it can do. Even though this is in the “development” track, you do not need to be a developer to attend!
