We have broken the series down into small, digestible episodes. We plan on adding episodes weekly until the series is complete.
You can either view the full playist on YouTube, or find a specific episode using the list below.
In the introduction video, we walk demonstrate what the finished product will look like after we’re done and explain the basic premise of the app.
01: Getting Speaker Data Via The WP REST API
As the first step in making our app, we setup our file structure and get some sample JSON data from wordcamp.org using an AJAX request.
02: Setting Up The Speaker Template
Here, we set up an HTML template within the DOM to insert our speaker data into. We then grab a random speaker from our JSON results provided by wordcamp.org and integrate that speaker’s data with our template.
More To Come Soon
For those on GitHub, we also have the project’s code hosted there in a public repository.
If you have questions or feedback on the series, we’d love to hear about it. Just leave us a comment here on our blog, or over at YouTube for the specific video you want to discuss.
