Professional WordPress Plugin Development 2E

The latest book I served as Technical Editor for

In the winter of 2019, I partnered with Brad Williams, Justin Tadlock, and John James Jacoby to tech edit the 2nd edition of Professional WordPress Plugin Development.

This significantly updated edition of Professional WordPress Plugin Development addresses modern plugin development for WordPress, the highly popular content management system (CMS). If you’re using WordPress to create and manage websites, WordPress plugins are the software that can extend or enhance CMS functionality. This book offers guidance on writing plugins for WordPress sites to share or sell to other users.

You can purchase it wherever books are sold.
