So, I got into WordPress development. Truth is I’ve been working with WordPress for a long time already. What fascinates me about WordPress is leverage. You can quickly turn around new ideas in hours – not days or weeks.
My first WordPress plugin: Add Basic Auth to Contact Form 7 API calls
I hear people having had bad experiences with WordPress when they tried it like years ago… if you’re reading this: give it another shot. It has come a long way.
I’ve picked a client project which if I had needed to do it with Rails it would have taken me at least a week to get it to a stable state. With WordPress I delivered that same day.
PHP really seems very inefficient for building anything a little of larger scope, but people are getting things done.
