Free Online JavaScript for WordPress Conference to Feature “Headless WordPress” Track, July 12

The second edition of the JavaScript for WordPress conference will be streamed online July 11-13, 2019. Based on the success of the 2018 event, which had 1,200 attendees watching live, organizer Zac Gordon decided to expand the event to feature three free days of talks, workshops, and a contribution day focused on JavaScript and WordPress.

The conference will run from July 11-13, and includes educational content for a whole range of Javascript capabilities, from beginner to advanced:

  • Day 1 – Workshops for JavaScript Beginners
  • Day 2 – Three Tracks of Intermediate and Advanced Talks (plus One Non-Technical Track)
  • Day 3 – Contributor Day to help improve the JavaScript-related documentation for WordPress

Gordon has published the finalized schedule for the 36 sessions and speakers that will be streamed on Friday, July 12. This year the event will feature one track devoted to exploring topics surrounding “headless WordPress,” an approach that eschews WordPress’ traditional architecture in favor of decoupling the front and backends, allowing developers to integrate different stacks. The track includes presentations like A React Theme in 30 Min, SEO for Headless WordPress Themes, Gatsby & WordPress, and Headless E-Commerce with BigCommerce. Other tracks feature more general JavaScript and Gutenberg topics.

Thanks to more than a dozen sponsors, registration is free, but viewers must sign up on the conference website in order to attend online.
